This piece, done last week in Tuesday Evening Muse group is a bit of a riddle. The words Find Me came up. It’s a bit like the kind of riddle language that Alice encountered in Wonderland. And so I search the image for an answer. The goddess in the throne chair is Athena I believe. And all the children seem quite intent on her. She stands in a frame like a figure on television and they seem quietly entertained or perhaps transfixed.
But who are the ghost children in their blankness. Find me! they chant. And like in a dream the answer arrives so slowly, along a current and on the back of a turtle – two ancient figures to join Athena in saying, “You are ageless.” An invitation perhaps, to step into the emptiness to find ourselves in that ageless form.
