Yes, and if I jump up and down would the world stand up and march with us in their own way? And if we fall, will we all catch each other?

anne artist said...

g, girl.....now there are some interesting questions.....

Bleeding Healer said...

If you tiptoed, I would sneek behind you and go "BOO". Would you get scared of seeing an unknown face? Or would laugh at seeing your faceless friend?
Oh Anne I have missed talking to you through these questions, it's been a long time right?I just was in my own blog buggle for a long time, but I am back. Hope you remember me.

bh, i am laughing with joy......i have missed you.

Bleeding Healer said...

anne artist said...

bh......it does feel like a quest. and there arises a sense of family, at least for me, with this blog. a sense of relatedness that is easy and freeing.

Bleeding Healer said...

Well regarding you publishing a book, I think you should, I don't know how, but you should. I would buy for sure..and I would probably meet you one day and tell you, I was the amateur answerer on your quest of questions.
BH
I would love to endorse you through my blog however small it may be..like spread the news

anne artist said...

bh, your help would be appreciated. right now, i am gathering all the images together and looking at them. that is the first step. my goal was to do 365 and i am nearing that.

for year two, i am going to draw them using a drawing pad and that will change the images, i imagine.

and i do hope we meet someday and i can celebrate the wise and creative ways you express who you are.

Bleeding Healer said...

Good luck with the project,once you publish a book,I believe you would be obliged to write about it,and about yourself, and the mischievous part of me would be happy to know that I get to know Anne,behind the artist...as selfish as it may sound, it would be nice knowing you. The world is said to be a small space, maybe someday somewhere I would see you...and maybe know you..
BH
logging off..would be answering again soon..

anne artist said...

bh, sounds good!

and once again, welcome back.

a quiet step can be as forceful as jumping on a silent evening. depending on the time a tiptoe and a jump could hold hands with each other down the same secret-obvious path.

anne artist said...

sir, i read this comment without noticing who wrote it and thought......hmmm, this feels familiar.....and then iooked and read your name.....in between the silence of your words, i sense a certain dance tiptoeing.....

it has seemed to me that is takes much more strength to be kind and gentle than to be the opposite. yet, sometimes, those qualities are regarded as weakness. so you have reminded me of that. to tiptoe could be to move quietly, softly through the noise......

and, to jump up and down could mean an expression of emotion not about impatience or noise but of exuberance or simply the desire to jump and then land on the earth again.

to hold hands with a jumper and lander while i tiptoe could be quite a journey......

metaphorically speaking, you should be able to.
practically ...you do not have to unless you work at the circus or you are a masochistic ballerina.

anne artist said...

or if life is a circus.........?

Sir said...

"in between the silence of your words, i sense a certain dance tiptoeing....."... that invokes an interesting question....

If words can dance, can feet speak?


For a jumper and lander, jumping is without words, it can only be described as the opposite of landing. To maintain a quiet semblance of self while holding hands with someone who lives in motion, jumping high and landing low would be the supreme act of strength....
...And you're right, it could be quite a journey. And the journey is all we're promised.

anne artist said...

it seems my feet have a lot to say but it does depend on the quality of the discussion.....

i am glad that i do not have to capture jumping in words.....freeing somehow.

yes, and the journey is all we are promised. but then, we forget the promise and demand that the journey be our trip.

"to maintain a quiet semblance of self" ....that is a beautiful definition of strength. thanks.

If walking on tiptoe makes you taller than me, then yes. If not, then there would be no need.

anne artist said...

and if i sat down, would i be shorter than you?
