The Metamorphosis of Desert to Glass, a Profound Change. – Franci Hepburn

23 July, 2021

I addressed the concept of metamorphosis on three levels. First, a literal metamorphosis: desert or sand. Like glass, we are transformed through hardship, tempered. And Covid is the kind of heat that changed me.

Then symbolically: the cone, cylinder and sphere represent the earth. The blue marks represent streams of living water in the desert, pointing to the dome below.

And lastly, spiritually, the white scribble signify the things we do not understand. But looking through the “contact lens,” the dome comes into focus. I have a new understanding of what really matters in my life after my loss. I think we are required to love, be good stewards of the earth and hold lightly onto things.
