artemuse “To love someone is to learn the song in their heart and sing it to them when they have forgotten.” - Arne Garborg

Who do you wish to send love towards today? Maybe someone close, or perhaps they are across oceans...feel free tag them in this post and share this thought.
Sending you much warmth and wellness on this cool Autumn day { Swan Song, graphite on paper, available }

artemuse Something I love about making gifts for people and doing portrait commissions is that regardless of how it turns out, it embodies a particular time, a place, an intention of love. Some part of you transfers onto the paper, the canvas, the cookies, the words... If you're not sure what you can do for a celebration, or even a less happy occasion, perhaps try creating something to express what is hard to say in words. We all speak more than one language.

artemuse Stand still.
The trees ahead and bushes beside you
Are not lost. .
Wherever you are is called
Here,
And you must treat it as a powerful stranger,
Must ask permission to know it and be known.
.
The forest breathes.
Listen. It answers,
I have made this place around you.
.
If you leave it, you may come back again, saying Here.
.
No two trees are the same to Raven.
No two branches are the same to Wren.
.
If what a tree or a bush does is lost on you,
You are surely lost.
Stand still. The forest knows
Where you are.
You must let it find you. .
.

David Wagoner, 'Lost'
