I created this work in response to my sadness about the culling of the sharks in Australia, the news that the dredging on the Great Barrier Reef would be going ahead, the culling and capturing of the dolphins and whales in other parts of the world and how it is, as human beings, that we may be creating imbalance in and on our planet; about how helpless I felt that I could not do anything about it. Watching the news, reading about it on on social media only made me feel worse. This is what came to me. And it has helped me… (that is the why)
Within us, around us, surrounding us, we are all beings.
We all live on this earth, whether it be on land, in water or in the sky.
We balance each other out.
Nature takes care of its own.
If a species is meant to fail, nature will take care of it.
It is not up to one species alone to make that decision.
This planet we live on is circular, not square
We’re all bubbles, balancing each other out.
And we are all here for a reason.
I don’t think that the reason we are here is to live at right angles to each other.
No matter where we happen to reside, I think we all need to balance each other out…
(and that is the what…)
I am for love and forgiveness, living united.
I am not for hate and revenge, divided.
I am not apart of many.
I am a part of many.
