Poetry Illustration. Always by Pablo Neruda.

I am not jealous of what came before me.

Come with a man on your shoulders,

Come with a hundred men in your hair,

Come with a thousand men between your breasts and your feet,

Come like a river full of drowned men which flows down to the wild sea,

To the eternal surf, to Time!

Bring them all to where I am waiting for you;

We shall always be alone, we shall always be you and I alone on earth,

To start our life.

Some older paintings from the Angel, Islington.

Full of energy, movement, power, forward motion, mystery, strangeness and feminine wisdom; these are just a few of the paintings I made after art college and before moving to France and then California. I exhibited these at the Theatre Royal in Bath. I was living in the Angel, Islington at the time, right next door to the Angel tube station above a grocer’s shop with my best friend Emma. Not long after these paintings, I took off by myself to travel, live and work abroad for six years. http://www.alicemason.net

To Bless the Space Between Us.

This is the time to be slow,
Lie low to the wall
Until the bitter weather passes.

Try, as best you can, not to let
The wire brush of doubt
Scrape from your heart
All sense of yourself
And your hesitant light.

If you remain generous,
Time will come good;
And you will find your feet
Again on fresh pastures of promise,
Where the air will be kind
And blushed with beginning.

― John O’Donohue

From ‘To Bless the Space Between Us: A Book of Blessings’

The Flame

In Sanskrit, the word for fire is agni. The ancient yogis saw this flame at the centre of the abdomen and believed it to be responsible for our vitality. When it is lit, we are connected to our purpose and sense that life is a sacred gift. It is said that those who cannot see the sacred around them have let their inner flame go out. Feel the call to reignite that fire, to cup your hands gently around those things you’ve forgotten and protect the flame, no matter how harshly the winds around you blow.

Goddess Freya and her Golden Tears

I seem to have developed a cottage industry in making these Freya’s Tears paintings. This one is the most recent and measures 24 inches by 30 inches so is quite a statement piece. She is flying over to the States. I can work to commission in creating one in any size. Email: alicejulietmason@gmail.com

The Peace of Wild Things

“The Peace of Wild Things”

When despair for the world grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting with their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.”
Wendell Berry
