From Vacant to Occupied

A topic like "vacant" reminds me of clutter clearing (via feng shui or vastu) and the principle of clearing out to allow new ideas and energies in.
And so it can be in mental life: "emptiness" as something beautiful, a vacancy just prior to a flood of new movement and life.
So here is my 5 by 7 linocut, handprinted both on "empty" and "lively" paper. Actually, the "lively" paper is from a 1961 AA handbook with perfect-sized maps for explorative printmaking! Have a great week! :)
