Mermaids are wonderful marine creatures found in fables
in every culture in the world throughout history.
There is a wealth of mystery and allure to these beautiful creatures.
Delving deeper into the mythological lore,
mermaids are quite contemporary in their independence;
especially of spirit but also of how to live one's life true to
one's personal aspirations, unrelated to any norm.
The mermaid is alluring,
because she is not only delicately feminine,
but also intelligent and engaging,
quite self-sufficient
and a formidable adversary, if crossed.
The mermaids wanted to be loving,
but were never willing to be caught in a net of any kind.
In responding to creating mermaids,
there are ephemeral and real qualities ~
a genuine spirit,
a loveliness of person,
an enthusiasm for life,
a quest for something out of reach,
a warmth and vibrancy,
a living in affirmation,
and a trust that these photo collages would be
a visual art to make one wonder about the
magic of life under the sea,
and a belief that living life every day could be blessed
... as a mermaid.
