Vento Nature Sanctuary *  Summer 2019
*Jaspar’s and my
place of:
WOW JOY adventure,
attending Nature’s continuous offerings of wonder and awe,
and
a beautifully quiet haven of solitude
throughout ALL four seasons.

The FLEUR DE LIS drawing was my FIRST work created
without the physical presence of JASPAR OBI
underneath my studio table.
 His HEARTFIRE energy is forever in my heart
and
for ALL who he met and blessed.

JASPAR OBI’s

soulspirit

has presented

as a

DEER.

Jim,

who was the first person
who met

Jaspar Obi

in December 2008,
received my text stating:

  Dr. Pomeroy just called at 4:10pm!

Jaspar’s ashes have arrived.

X

X

X

X

At  the very same moment
as Jim read my message:

Jim had looked upon

a

DEER

stopped at curb
on Lake Bde Maka Ska
(formerly Calhoun)
– a lake in the heart
of  residential
Minneapolis.

X
X
X
X
X

Jim stopped.

The

deer

gazed at Jim

and

then

slowly/peacefully

crossed

the street

toward the waters.

X
X
X
X
X

Jim called me immediately
with this sighting,
 with this rare phenomena, 
with this

annunciation.

X

X

X

X

X

I’ve been

waiting

for a sign of

what

energy/form

Jaspar Obi’s

soulspirit

would

present to me.

X

X

His lived life was an envoy of pure love.

X

X

X

X

X

Jaspar Obi’s

valiant / victorious

soulspirit

crossed

over

at 5:15 pm

last week

on

Veteran’s Day.

I knew

that the

DEER

was my

Jaspar Obi:

a

DEAR / DEER.

YES.

X
X
X
X
X

X
X
X
X

X

A wash

of

serene quiet sweet beauty

swept through my body

  once Jim told me the story.

The choke of my profound grief

lessened its clawed grip on my heart.

I felt the

beautiful calm

that I always experienced with

Jaspar Obi’s

living/breathing presence:

TREASURE HEART.

The symbolism of a deer is :

spiritual superiority;

piety;

devotion;

independence;
and

purification.

X

X

X

A

DEER

is a

messenger

of

serenity,

can

see

between

shadows

and

hear

unsaid

words.

X

X

X

Deer symbolism

teaches us

to maintain our innocence

and

gentleness

so that we can

share

our 

open-heartedness

with others.

JASPAR OBI’s
ashes,
contained in a simple cardboard box
and
presented in a black velvet pouch,
were brought
home
on the evening of 19 November 2019.
  The photograph was taken on the kitchen rug
where Jaspar’s food/water bowls were placed.

‘ELEMENT

MINIMAL. SIMPLE. PURE.

All of my work refuses/denies the camera’s eye.
The revelation, the experience,
occurs with an actual encounter – presence.
The beauty of one’s beloved is
the improvisational/sacred listening
of/ for/ to/ with
the beloved.

This is the last day

on Earth

of

my

BELOVED

JASPAR OBI.

X

X

X

X

X

X

X

X

ELEMENT

is the last series of art

that was created

with the

ALL of ALL

of

JASPAR OBI

in my studio

– sleeping below my stainless steel table

and

sending his blessings to me as

I dove for the pearl deep,

listening to the sound of the silver horn,

in the sea of my imagination.

X

X

JASPAR OBI

was present,

glorious/vital/adventurous/joyous/blessed

presence,

for 10.5 years in my life.

X

X

Sacred listening.

X

X

X

 

JASPAR OBI

is landing his

SPITFIRE

at

1715 military time CST.

Please light a candle for my Jaspar Obi.

Thank you.

Peaceful.

Loved.

Supported.

Released.

X

X

All gathered at 4:45 pm.
The wind was fierce and the temperature was frigid.
They  truly had my back
– I felt an unusual comfort in the shelter of their care.

 

X

X

I  had bathed Jaspar
in the bathtub
two hours earlier.
I seared every pass
of my hand on his body
to memory.
He was too weak to shake off the water.
We would have a game:
Shake #1 to #8!!
Jaspar loved being bathed – feeling clean, fresh.

X

Jaspar Obi’s
K9 buddies walked with him
as he was wheeled
in his cart
to
Dr. Pomeroy’s clinic several blocks away:
Juno (Leah),
Jax (Maggie);
Remy ( Erin + Todd);
with
Steph
and
Mike. 

X

X

BEAUTIFUL.

X

X

I burst out crying
when I experienced

the beauty

of the
loving kindness,
compassion
and
courage 
of those who chose to
walk with Jaspar/me
as my
heart
was

shattering.

X

X

Love IS.

PRESENCE.

LOVE is a riverVERB.

 

X

X

X

caressed
Jaspar’s
sweet body,
wrapped my arms around him
– my chest upon him,
kissed him,
and
thanked him
for our adventure
until…

X

X

Dr. Pomeroy was amazed that Jaspar’s  life force
prevailed over the grim prognosis
of his bone cancer in his sinus cavities.
Every week Dr. Pomeroy checked in.

X

X

Jaspar and I

CHOSE to LIVE.

WONDER.

AWE.

Jaspar was/is my soul guide and companion in life.

X

X

X

The walk back without my Jaspar
was walking without my legs.
Jaspar and I had created/ lived a beautiful bountiful life for 10.5 years
– together.

X

X

Suddenly,
as we entered Mears Park.
the cascade of our stories
overwhelmed me.
I was surrounded
in the dedicated love of his BEST K9 friends
and
 dear friends.

X

X

When we were crossing
through Mears Park,
Mike stopped and said:

LISTEN!

We all stopped.
In the park’s pavilion’s stage,
from the large speakers:
