Blossom

Blossom

Blossom. To develop, grow, mature, progress, evolve, burst forth.

My girl @wolfie_biggins is on a creative streak at the moment and wanted to draw something for me again over the weekend. These gifts of hers are precious, not only because of what they are (which is beautiful) but because of what else they offer. This is a thing I'm slowly starting to realise about art that I'll confess I never truly 'saw' before. It's not only about the visual, surface of the image that moves me, but their power to go deeper, like the roots, digging into your soul.

These images are helping me to see that art is so much more, they are like feeling 'prompts'. I've not yet really looked into oracle cards, but that's something I think I could get into! So this image helps me reflect on myself and my relationship to blossoming. Something I feel like I maybe shy away from, for it requires courage, and change. It seems a bit 'showy' to me... like I'd like to stay as a seedling in the shade for fear of being seen, and not being the 'perfect' blossom. Which is interesting, as I realise now that, like nature, we need to step out and take up space, for without the flower there will be no seeds. Nature is an amazing teacher, as is my daughter.

Do you use oracle cards or other visual 'prompts' in your life that help you dig a tiny bit deeper?
