why do we seek refuge?

thoughts about

“seeking refuge”

We are all seeking refuge in some way in our lives. It is the human condition throughout history. Many today seek to find solace in prayer, peace in nature and safety in moving to a better place. Compassion for the human spirit is essential.

finding refuge within you

 

“we are all in this together.” Seek refuge by physically moving to another place that offer hope and safety!

My innate idea in creating this piece begins with knowing that my family heritage originates outside of the United States. My father immigrated here with his parents to find a better life and so did my mother’s parents. We have nurtured our connections, helping each other, like the golden cord in the painting. Our hearts reach out for each other.
