Art and Anthesis

Anthesis is the period during which a flower is fully open and functional. What does that look like? In the rhetorical human experience brings out a difference in correlations such as; “…I promise you a rose garden, and I give you nothing but thorns…”.   In plants it is quite the opposite the dance with nature earth, wind, air, and sunlight brings about something spectacular is various species. Unlike the rhetorical anthesis human experience the plants carry within their own secrets. For instance, the praying hands plant just takes your breath away when they seem to raise their leafy hands up in prayer like clockwork. As humans we have so many bodies astral, ethereal, physical etc.…Yet, we just focus on that physical need chasing fool’s gold. So, when the physical body starts giving out many people just lay waiting for death to come. Some of the physical ills that plague our bodies remain or just morph into some other illness. Then, we seek medications with names that we cannot pronounce to eliminate societal-ills associated with stress, sleep deprivation, poor diet etc.…The art of Disrupting that beast of destruction is the key meditations, long walks, reading etc.… The artist finds that thin line between time and space to capture a style far beyond the human imagination. The tapestry of the artist anthesis is the period during which he /she is fully open to the process and functional. Despite, the distractions a true artist remain unaffected, undefeated, unapologetic.

Proverbs 18:16 “A man’s gift maketh room for him”.
