I finally started these two doors that have been patiently waiting in my studio. I was inspired by reading a passage from James Hillman's book A Blue Fire, where he discusses the difference between the peaks of spirituality and the valleys of the soul, and that both are necessary in this experience of building a life as a human being. This idea rings true as I consider the state of our country as well as the experiences of the recent eclipse. All things are important when framed as spiritual work. And the darkness is not to be resisted or shunned in order to only experience the high points. The darkness is a profound teacher, that is asking to be recognized, acknowledged and released.
