what I know

These are some of the metalwork  nichos (shrines) I've made in the last 2 weeks. 
I love this "heart on fire" theme. 
It's a common mexican folk art image.
Milagro corazon - or healing heart.

Did you know our hearts have neurons too?
Not just our brains?
It is strangely comforting to know that.
It means that even in the midst of something I don't understand with my mind, my heart can know a thing or two.
How many times have you said,
"I know in my heart ..." -?-
I'm leaning on that knowledge these days.

Always the heart knowledge is more reliable than head knowledge, and sometimes they are simply the same thing. I LOVE these.

I have to think about that...the heart and neurons...I guess that's where the impulse to beat comes from. I think it's the nodal something or other. Gosh too many cobwebs in my brain! But, I do know about "knowing in my heart" it's real.
