Art: The Promise (Horizontal) by Artist Alma Lee
Life my go round and round
to and fro and upside down
along comes promise
and hope resounds
lyric and melody
harmony all around

As it turns out this has become a very personal piece for me.  I was working on the relationships between the curves and entwining.  It quickly became a construction of a delicate tension that was only going to work one's own!  But then after you worked with it for a awhile, and went with the flow you did indeed sense a release, hope and promise of sorts. About a month later  It was discovered that I have a large cyst within the spine when  I was shown a MRI scan of the area I immediately thought hey that looks very much like the Promise. And my relationship with my spine is also very much the same.
