WDIY Kenn Michael interviewed me for Musings about my current exhibit, FLOW at the Nurture Nature Center in Easton, PA. Talking with Kenn about the work and hearing his observations was a wonderful experience.
Host Kenn Michael speaks with Alison Bessesdotter about her exhibit “Flow” at The Nurture Nature Center, 518 Northampton St., Easton, showing through October 1st 2013. “Flow” The flow of water, of life: the constant movement of all things organic. The drip, the run; erosion. These ideas are to be accentuated and enhanced by the artist’s stylistic transition from watercolor to throughout the course of the exhibition.
As Earth Day April 22, 2012 approaches, I want to share a poem today. The poem came to me through a Word Wednesday poet from Allentown, PA. I have little to say, because I just prefer to let his words shine through.
Salt by Ismael Street
A mother is the salt of the earth . The salt of society. The light of the world. A natural resource far and above your Comprehension. She preserves, reconciles, and adds Taste to the fruits of life and love we enjoy We inspire to be. Her mirror reflects our soul. Her light lamp brightens our night. Giving rhythm in the dance of the ocean And the sun. Nourishing our minds, our bodies, And the world.
