adolescence

 

rebellion & change

on my thirteenth birthday I closed my eyes and wished…

to be twenty

i wouldn’t wish this age on my worst enemy

however, most battle through

change and rebellion

something in between

if i were to do it over again

there would be a lot more spray paint involved

i think this stick rawks

school age

routine

numbers and letters used to get most everyone in line

the rules

schoolyard and classroom both

i quite like this stick

i used to quite like the rules (not such a fan any longer. i have a friend to thank for that)

it was made in the company of some formidable ladies

it just feels good this one

play age

fun & games

my kiddies are recent graduates of play age

if this is not the best time of ones’ life, than…

the secret is returning to that inner five-year old

often

i do. no surprise

i did. in making this stick

this one makes me smile

happy

toddler

wonder

i remember this age

fondly, clearly

mostly, i think of it as an age of wonderment

and conjures for me a sense of movement

the clouds, the ladybug, the red balloon

then i remember my twins at this age

…and it is mostly dread

infancy

building blocks

smallest of the sticks

black and white vision

elemental development

simple in its complexity

…or is it complex in its simplicity?

better for people of smaller stature either way

e.t.d.

ten days

they are finished and all dressed

ready to set off on their journeys

for the eight days to come, i will introduce each of our  “walk with me” #NBO12 sticks

i am excited for the start of their adventure

the concept has lived in me for some time now

the intention of the project is to allow the night to shape a collaborative inter-active piece in celebration of connectedness, both within ourselves and with those among us. inviting others to actively collaborate taps into the energy of what is most beautiful in life, self-love, connection, self-expression, fun, creation, community

join the flickr group to follow the action starting during Nuit Blanche Ottawa september 22

the group is the canvas for the project. as photos of the journeys are uploaded and shared, the snaps will start to paint a, some, picture

watch the collage take shape

(she hopes! fingers crossed!)

i wonder where we will go?
