Kiss of the Eclipse - Breaking the Gridlock of Hate Number 4 (Silk-Featherbrush Number 20)
In addition to this latest title, the Breaking the Gridlock of Hate Series includes: "Angels and Dangers - Breaking the Gridlock of Hate Number 1"; "The Continuum of Us - Breaking the Gridlock of Hate Number 2", and, "Uncaged and Unafraid - Breaking the Gridlock of Hate Number 3."
First off, the recent "Blood Wolf Moon Eclipse" did influence this image to some degree but only slightly. One of the metaphysical legends surrounding total lunar eclipses is that the period when the moon goes completely dark is the time to mentally release oneself from negative habits, thoughts, conditions, etc. In other words, for some they are almost like a second New Year's eve. For the purpose of this series, it's about waking to the realization that hate-mongering is not a win-win but a lose-lose situation.
I had stepped back from posting additional images online for this series in order to develop more fully the Kaleidoscope Moons collection. However, I realized how closely the two are connected when I heard a young man lamenting the shooting death of a teen-age rapper and blaming it mostly on "so much hate in Savannah." So I'm now attempting a more balanced approach to the creation of different canvases dedicated to different themes. From my perspective, there can be no doubt that one of the most important is convincing ourselves that we can acknowledge disagreements without drawing guns, firing missiles, poisoning diplomats, or shutting down governments. It really is okay to give peace a chance.
