It's been some time since I've written about keys and their symbolism. Just when I think I've let go, moved on, or forgotten about them-them and all of the deep-rooted feelings of which they are symbolic- they resurface; just as lost keys often do.
I'm finding my way again, in ways I'll write more about as they become clearer-both perceptively and in reality. Until that time, here is what has become of one of the sweet little doll arms from my last vintage score. It's now brass-capped, "Tameka brown" (acrylic paints and satin Krylon finish) and in the company of a 1.5 cm key, bronze lucite bead-of which I'm still uncertain; a large flattened brass oval, and a scrap of worn, whitewashed wood, patterned paper. Say that three times fast. I'd say I'm almost 100% certain where I'm headed with this, so stay tuned.
Peace and creative expression
