I feel grieved by the divisions that seem to be growing wider.
I feel saddened by friends and family who feel alone, because they have different perspectives.
I feel saddened by discussions that can’t be civil and respectful.
I feel saddened and ashamed of the inability to listen and to hear what another is saying.
I feel saddened that we are not seeing each other as a part of the same humanity.
Why do we only see in black and white?
I feel hope that conversations can be civil.
I feel hope that love can cover different opinions.
I feel hope for the softening of hearts towards others.
I feel the grace that I have received can be shared.
I feel hope that the world we are experiencing right now will change.
I know that this too shall pass.
This is a diptych, each painting is seperate. The white painting is framed in a black floating frame and the black painting in a white Tasmanian oak floating frame.
