Well, today seemed the day to finally revisit the collaboration that started this all, the namesake of this blog and a catalyst for a massive change in our life.
This piece was one of our first collaborations, and it was so fitting that it would be with perhaps the longest-running friend I’ve ever had, Riley Theodore.
This piece was a definition of intention, a map, and one I have sought to follow ever since.
The original piece is below for reference, and can be found in its entirety at https://objectsanddistance.com/2018/02/10/objects-and-the-distance-between-them/.
With each passing day
The light grows
And the shadows fade
There is no shame in being alive
There is no reason to fear
Can happen at any time
And colors move
While great fires
Lies a world of possibility
Ripe with potential
And growing daily
I can see
Dotted in beams
What am I?
Note: This piece was written as a collaboration with the visual artist Riley Theodore. The artwork accompanying this post was painted as a visual interpretation of the piece.
Update 3/15/18: The second piece is this collaboration is now available, titled The Process.
