BLURB

I’ve been excited all the way here. The beautiful flowers, rich in symbolism, ready to fill my mind with grand ideas, stories and possibilities. I find that the most engaging ones are those widely open to interpretation. A blue one here—faithfulness, constancy, humility. A pink one there— longing, playful, fickle. Each shape, size and color representing something in the human world. It’s taken me a while to understand these associations because I come from a different place. To me, blue represents home. Pink represents the sun reflecting through the water. I come from a world of water. I am the guardian of a small village far from here where I live in the lake. To a bird or a fox these human meanings of symbolism are lost. But I am a dragon; I am wise. By visiting this art, I can listen to human interpretations and understand another perspective. Oh, wait. No, I’m not a dragon. I'm a bird. I’ve probably consumed too many of these magic flowers again. No wonder these butterflies always come here. [Mychaelangelo Norkus]
