Artist Statement About This Piece
In our youth, we aim to prove the "rightness" of our ideas. Scenes of past argument are easy for us to recall, and while at the time those arguments seemed so vital, in reflection they are often inconsequential compared to the importance of our relationship. We wanted to be right, even at the cost of disconnecting from the people we love. Part of our maturity in self comes when we learn what battles are truly of consequence, which ones matter, and what small disagreements we can let go of in order to strengthen those relationships. Rumi speaks to this sense of letting go of our "rightness" in order to meet up with the other and enjoy that field together.
