I find Heidi Daus' creations versatile and rich in Art Deco Designs. In Art Deco I see, hear and feel Egypt and it's roots that go to center of the African continent. From Barbra Bixby and Nicky Buttler I've learned to look to the distant past for inspiration and guidance. I see them as Sankofa. An Adinkra term from West Africa. Sankofa means "never be afraid to go back and get what you forgot."
Thank you for joining me in this space.
While you are here, what I hope to share with you my feelings that . . .
The spirit is liquid, ephemeral gases, and granite,
It’s ice and fire
It knows no boundaries or limitations.
To make it though each day we allow our sprints to be inhibited and aligned with the conventions we commit to,
. . .but there is always that piece . . . that part of who we are that dances with élan,
. . .that dances in a style only we know and to a music only we create and hear
At those times, when you allow your spirit to be displayed, to you . . .to the world
I hope these adornments will add
. . . a hue, a tone, a tint of color
. . . a spark of light,
. . . a quench of dark,
. . . a note of harmony,
. . . a moment to display
Your Spirit Dance
