Alright…so, the last fifty pages of “Moby Dick” are churning up everything in me that gets excited about writing, nature, humanity and strength of human spirit, adventure and art! I knew that there was some reason I was drawn to this VERY difficult read! Ahab is presently suffering the apparent blows of a whale with WILL! It is a superb challenge that is going on at this point…unbelievable! It took 430 pages to bring me to this magical place! But….I am here! Engaged! Challenged! Thoughtful!
One year I considered organizing a group exhibit with my Grade Nine art students. At the time, I spoke to them about the demise of the Beluga Whales of the St. Lawrence seaway. I demonstrated and talked about, at length, my process. And then….we made art! The exhibit has never happened…but, I hold on to the future possibility.
