Gemini Moon

Shadows exist because of the light. The more you shine, the deeper the shadow. The greater the darkness, the more you illuminate. © Manivillie Kanagasabapathy AN: Another piece inspired by the new moon workshop - I share my work in the group and usually challenge myself to write something new for the group.

The Gift – Reflection

Sometimes I don't get the point of a gift. Should I make, people show me they care for me by presenting me with something.

Movement and motion, in perfect synchronicity. © Manivillie Kanagasabapathy AN: Today is National Dance Day in Canada :).
