Bonsai #2 The Beauty of Time, Original Ink Painting.


Ageing is a gift we often take for granted.

Modern humans seem so obsessed with youth that we often overlook the value of something that has been around for a long time. The amount of knowledge and experience acquired over time is so special and precious but, like trees, we often take it for granted. The more context we have, the deeper our understanding is and the richer our life experience is. The superficial joys of life can be found in the new and fleeting but true magic can be found in things that tell a story of how they lived and what it means to exist.


Every crease and mark adds depth and information that help us develop our understanding.

Studying the details allows us to look deeper. Here we can find answers to our questions. Here we can find meaning and purpose. Here we can come to appreciate all the creases and marks we ourselves have acquired through the years and understand their value when we realise that they are earned and that they form who we are. When the veil is lifted we can see the true beauty in the world.
