13 moon ladders made from the deconstructed dream
the crescent moon from the dream is big in relation to the 13 little ladders
I need to make a lot more moon ladders!
Bilbergia nutans aka nun’s tears is in flower!

this plant was the first thing I could draw again when my brain and hands started to recover from the radiation therapy for throat cancer back in 2005
a scan of my hand so long ago
so very grateful to still be on the planet making more dreams all these years down the road!

    Your moon ladders are so compelling….twisty, sinuous, individualistic, dreamlike pathways to a deeper dream.

    Lovely sculpture, drawing and poem.

    Hi MC – so many ladders to the moon – looking forward to the finished product of your creative mind. Beautiful photo of the nun’s tears – but sad about the radiation even if it was a long time ago. Go well and be well. B

    Deep gratitude Mo that you came through 2005 for you so inspire us with love, with hope, with caring, with such creativity and with ladders that reach for the moon and beyond and always, always, enrich our world by your very being…

  7. Glad that by your hand the dream continues: Re-purposing elements for the next incarnation. Delicious invention in process and that drawing is so moving. What better plant to stand for the pain of treatment.

    thirteen ladders for thirteen moons … a lunar year

    and oh, such incredible beauty in the nun’s tears and the hand that drew them …

    Strands of genetic material from the angels? That’s one way to look at this ladders to the moon. We are all grateful that you made it through that bout of cancer! What a compelling picture of your hand. It would make an incredible subject for a quilt.

  10. Hazel says:

    Every image is beautifully exquisite! Where those ladders might go… So very glad you are here dreaming, oxo.

  11. Nancy says:

    I, along with you and the others, am deeply grateful for your healing and continued art making. Such beauty here, created by your amazing hands. That hand image speaks! The first pic, the ladders looked like train tracks at first…or maybe I’ve just been singing a bunch of train chants with the work babies! xo

  12. Oh, wow, I can’t wait to see this piece completed! What are the ladders made of? xo

  13. Saskia says:

    wow Mo, grateful that you made it through! despite everything that’s going on in the world, we are fortunate that many forms of cancer can be treated successfully nowadays………..
    one can never have too many stars, nor ladders for reaching them!
