I can see you on the other side of the verdant valley. I know it’s you. As I walk closer I see the hair, the smile and the eyes. The loving, generous eyes. They told me that you died. They didn’t know about the place where there is no space or time. It’s part of song. One line about a place where there is no space or time. It does exist, this place, this precious place. We are there. I feel a joy that I did not know was possible.
Sandy is one of several In Print members to have her work on Public Displays of Affection featured at the Allegory Project, an art space and exhibition co-sponsored by the Art Matters Artist Coop and the Rockford Area Arts Council. The Allegory Project plans to have a theme that is explored in various art forms: painting and sculpture, photography, repurposed objects, and the spoken and written word.
