|A New Moment|
How do you decide what the name will be?
When do you have the name?
When the name comes to you, do you know it instantly?
Is is just a name?
Or does it have some special personal meaning?
Or you know the name but don't realize the "personal" meaning until later.
Do you know what I'm talking about?
Here is what happened. I finished this little painting, A New Moment, and of course always always, need to share. But wait, I don't have a name. It hasn't come to me yet. My working title was "She". I really never meant to use that as a name but needed a title for my print folder. That was all I came up with in that moment earlier this week.
So today, I'm getting anxious about not having a name. I have an old book that I cut words from and I call it my "she" book because it is full of the pronoun, she. I used it when I was making these, and these, and these. So, I thought maybe the "she" book would have a name for me. You know, the universe was sending me there. I randomly opened the book and a little piece of paper fell from the page. On one side there was a list; crackers, pecante, Tabasco, lemon juice. I turned the paper over and it said, "Live a new moment". There it was, a message waiting for me. Although, I think many of you will "get it", I don't even know how to relate to you how it is personal and yet relevant to this new little painting. It just is.
