"Absence is to love what the wind is to fire. When it's a small fire, the wind kills it. When it's a real fire, it intensifies it."
“To let go of judgment does not mean that you don’t see what they do. It means that you recognize their behavior as a form of conditioning, and you see it and accept it as that. You don’t construct an identity out of it for that person. That liberates you as well as the other person from identification with conditioning, with form, with mind.”
— Eckhart Tolle
Sarah-Linh: Colors seen in full daylight but also at dusk, in humid countryside warmed by the orangish yellow sun. Lichen and saltpeter tones. Herbaceous, mossy shades. The colors of cooking spices. Urban, zinc tones, or the color of asphalt beginning to dry after a downpour. Color is also a matter of the adjacent shades and layering. Overlays can be used to create colors determined by the depth of each successive layer. We’re fond of the image of an onion with clear layers, just as we layer pieces of clothing which each have a different function. You peel them off or put more on over the course of the day, in natural, consonant tones with varying degrees of intensity, depending on whether they are close to the body or out in the open, in the light of day.
"I look to landscape when I need clarity or relief, water most especially. Reminds me of everything I need to know."
