Sedona Home

The idea of home is a theme that is continues to come up for me.

Home in the house I own and the office I rent.

Home in how I feel about certain people in my life.

Home in my body.

Home in the world, and in different places I visit.
Around this time last year, Swampboy and I visited Sedona, Arizona.

It was so unlike the Northeast. I can still see the oranges and reds when I close my eyes.

I felt completely flooded with visual images everywhere I looked. It was not, however, an overstimulated variety of flooded, like I feel whenever I am in a mall. This was different.

The vast emptiness of the landscape balanced the flood, so that the way I experienced this place was soothing.

I felt at home there.

I brought a traveling watercolor kit and painted a few quick studies while I was there. Just like every other home I know, Sedona has recently begun to come out of me in deeper creative ways.
