An Evolving Life. No Wonder Why.
No Wonder Why.
Summers end cobalt stars
Bark still burning
Sands shift solidify
Last licks caramel bars
Castles can multiply
Droplets discovered Mars
No wonder why
Last week while preparing for a show, I rediscovered this image taken awhile back. The next day while treading water in the ocean as I faced the beach filled with bathers—spotting my far-off husband whose feet were firmly planted onshore—the verse above started to take shape.

I have had the good fortune of knowing Meryl Spiegel for many years. We met during my BNB days when she was referred to me as a resource for a specific type of photography I was searching for. I also knew her as a writer. Over the years, I have been impressed with Meryl’s talent and creativity, and the honesty of her work. When Meryl began to sketch, paint, work with pastels, she truly overlaid one talent on top of another. The layers were intriguing. I reached out to Meryl recently because I thought that the Hummingbird audience would appreciate her work, and value her process. They say that timing is everything, and in this case it was, because Meryl was thinking about not only “showing” her work, but writing about it too. In our new series, An Evolving Life, Meryl will share the stages, challenges, and meaning of her art, and the journey that coincides with the pieces she highlights. Sandra Novick
