GAZING AT THE MOON
We are studying visual artist Rogelio Polesello in class.
Such research has caused me to currently be amused by the shape of a circle.
The eternity of the line itself that makes the circle,
And the depth of endless possibilities inside this eternal shape.
All of this in parallel with the ability an artist has to create a moment.
Sometimes a moment that although not “eternal”,
Comes as close as we can get to being able to “create” something eternal,
Taking my time to think about all of this is important to my visual brain,
Because it at least makes me think that I might grasp a bit better the idea of eternity.
Specially when I think of clothing, or recipes, or music;
Things that were already there. Created by God. Discovered by someone.
Most importantly, things that now are an important part of life.
All of them appearing as if they have existed forever
Specially to people like me. Born in an era where there was already a norm.
And yes…I know this might be a vain way to attempt to understand eternity.
But to me, it helps as a reminder that God is the beginning and the end.
If I get overwhelmed by the idea of an item having existed for so long in history.
then I have nothing left but to be in awe at the fact that God has always been.
God is everywhere. We don’t create anything.
May I always give the Glory to Him.
“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.”- Revelation 22:13
