Painting Air

I am back in the the realm of dancing light, drawing colours in charcoal, feeling the see of cosmic consciousness on the tips of my charcoal laden fingers. Again, I am studying the veil painting technique taught by Liane Collot d'Herbois.

We are working with this verse as a contemplation for the week.

The stars spake once to Man.
It is World-destiny
That they are silent now.
To be aware of the silence
Can become pain for earthly Man.

But in the deepening silence
There grows and ripens
What man speaks to the Stars.
To be aware of the speaking
Can become strength for Spirit-Man.
—Rudolf Steiner
