Sane Spaces

One of the young student guests at my recent art show closing reception said, 

"I'm going to miss this show."  

She used to come to the UIC African American Art Gallery to do her work through the school year and finals,

along with other students practicing yoga, making art, and, on Finals week, even eating breakfast there!  

It occurred to me that I had made an art show that successfully created a zone of energy.

For four months, eleven photographs in the AACC gallery wrapped the space in energy, serving as an artistic "power station" for the campus -

and creating a room that felt really, really nice to rest in.  

This show working with vibration worked beyond my expectations, and offered me an experience rich with potential.

Share a Breath

Take time to hear someone's voice from the inside.  

Match your calm breathing with the breathing of your partner,

and 'share a breath' in and out for a time of silence.


Not only does this calm emotions,

this action serves to 'sync' one's heart with the other, to humanize a connection, and energize the space for a newer - or deeper - conversation.
