eagle inside out

Life in constant flux, moments flavoured by emotion and thought. It is in these moments I look to Nature. It is Nature that reminds me that there is nothing to hold onto, let feelings come and go, let thoughts come and go, natural mind. The sky does not hold onto clouds, they appear and disappear. When I look for the eagle I do not see the eagle. When I search for the answer I do not discover the truth. There is the fear that comes with LETTING GO, this is just a thought. I will see a different cloud than you, and yet we share the same experience of seeing a cloud, knowing it is a cloud, that comes, and goes.

on a side note Diane, the trees here are starting to wake up…

And now a minimotion short documentary style with dramatic accents titled, ‘inside out’.

Eagles come and go, so do pandemics.

seasons change

In this part of the world the seasons change. As winter loosens its grip, the snow melts and the landscape turns from white to brown. You can almost hear the trees getting excited as they awake from their dormancy, and birds also seem to be quite  psyched.

the path….

As life moves forward so too does the path.

What can I say that hasn’t already been said before, life is short, may it be joyful.

touch earth

To make a path

one has to be the path

touch the earth

be earth

touch the dirt

be dirt

touch the stone 

be stone.

drala in BC

 Although the sun is always in the sky, what is it that causes you to look up and see that it is there? Although magic is always available, what allows you to discover it? The basic definition of drala is “energy beyond aggression.” The only way to contact that energy is to experience a gentle state of being in yourself. -‘Shambhala. The Sacred Path of the Warrior’ by Chögyam Trungpa

For the past little while hälts has been soaking up some BC magica, taking in as much as is humanly possbile while giving back to his elders, building a safe and sturdy path so they may move easily and confortably. The artistic flow enters new territory, gaining a new appreciation of the work of stone masons. Similar to painting, the act of mark making takes on 3-D form, brick to brick, stone to stone,  one step closer to final composition. There is a sense of fulfillment and happiness in this work, it will be interesting to see how this influences hälts artistic practice as he continues along the artists path.

The artist path, literally.

  

The inspector checking the pathway workmanship on a hot and sunny day.

  

Working in the yard making a path and one cannot but help be entralled by the sacred geometry.

  

Breaks by the lake put life to persecptive as BC soaks into my soul, or isnit th either way around, gratitude all around.

  

As the moon crosses sky so too does deer cross the Earth, as above so below.

  

The ‘wolfman’ painting by hälts including feathers, birch bark and acrylic paint. This painting portrays the effects of spending quality time in BC.

  

‘dancer on the lake’ a hybrid art by hälts, the first version of this series was projected in Louvre in Paris last summer, this a reminder that a small gesture can really go a long long way.

  

flower child at heart.

BC magica

Following a busy couple of months hälts the artist behind the art and fotos you see here on Mahaloness decided it was best to head west and spend time in his second home, where the elders live, Windermere BC, East Kootenay. I see the valley as a continuously morphing painting, each time I look, something new added to the composition, ceaseless magica, and a place where the mind eases.

What does my dragonfly friend see?

In my mind this was a double overhead Hawaiian, even if it is only a lake and that would be highly improbable.
