"After a Day of Rumi"

Mixed Media Drawing

Yesterday I had the joy of listening to Coleman Barks recite his translations of the poetry of Rumi to the cello music of David Darling. I had no idea their performance would be so affecting--unusually stirring. Barks also recited some of his own poems which were wonderful. Both men are so in touch with the fire inside that makes us creative. Darling's music was more like conversation--I've really never heard anything like it before. So this morning when I went to my studio, I had to do something that allowed for spontaneity and this drawing is the result.

Lovely Vicki! It makes me think of fish, like a school of salmon.
