RP-013 Waiting For The Bus 6/50

Description

Limited Edition Bronze 6/50. This stylized human figure is well dressed and looking very good on the surface.  The pose has a slight, almost imperceptible anticipatory lean toward the direction the figure is looking. There appears to be no other activity keeping the figure occupied.  The most telling detail that betrays the figure’s desire to pretend that all is well is that the head is proportionately too small for the body.  Our unique identity is inextricably tied to how we view ourselves.  When we live disengaged from life, our self-concept is almost always diminished.

WAITING FOR THE BUS is an expression of one of the states of existence for humans.  As humans, we are capable of living fully in the present, living and enjoying life.  Sometimes we live in the past with the excess baggage of experiences predetermining or limiting our responses to the present. Likewise, sometimes we exist too focused on the future.  Someday we will have more time; someday we will have more money; someday life won't be quite as hectic, etc.  Then, we promise ourselves that we will take that dream vacation, or spend more quality time with loved ones, or study painting, or do whatever it is that will nurture a long almost forgotten desire deep within our soul.  We spend our lives "waiting for the bus" that will take us to better days.

WAITING FOR THE BUS was created to be a reminder to keep life in balance.  The past no longer exists and the future has yet to be created.  All we really have is the present, new and fresh and ours to experience moment by moment.
