May you see the Star. Love, Charlotte

May you see the Star. Love, Charlotte – with my Italian Greyhound, Beau

And a poem from Rumi:

The Creek and the Stars

Spirit is so mixed with the visible world that giver,
gift and beneficiary are

one thing. You are the grace raining down, the grace
is you. Creation is

a clear, flat, fast-moving creek, where qualities reflect
Generations rush by, while

the stars stay without a splash. When you lose your
appetite for food, you’ll

be given other nourishment. There’s well-being that is not
bodily and beings

that live on fragrance. Don’t worry about losing animal
energy. Go the way of love

and ask provisions. Love more the star region reflected,
less the moving medium.

– thank you to the poet, Coleman Barks, for the translation. From The Soul of Rumi.

I was called to be an artist. And as an old old midwife said to me "If the Lord wants you to do something, you won't have no good luck' til you do." So, here I am, sharing what I love, longing to illuminate the work of art, which is everywhere.

What’s this?

Welcome to my blog about the Lowcountry of South Carolina, a place proud with beauty, history and art. Sometimes we feel a call, to be, to go, to do. I was called to be an artist, and as an old midwife from Alabama said, “If the good Lord wants you to do something, you won’t have no good luck until you do it.”

So here I am writing about what I know, about the 'under glimmer' as the poet Basho, says, the way I have learned to see, to notice. I am inspired by, and talking about the history and art and culture of this place that has called me to herself. By the ancestors.

My background includes a degree in fine arts from a small private college in Florida, and before that, four years of all girls' boarding school in Asheville. I worked as a professional photographer, helped my children grow up, and now and I love seasoned things, good food, better conversation, beauty, my beloved and beautiful Italian Greyhound, Beau. Moved by the sacred places and stories of this beautiful historic land called the Lowcountry, I am here in spirit and I hope to infect you with my love of this place.
