Roxane Telesha

This piece is an autobiography expressed through the animal my family and friends have identified with me for years, the hummingbird which flits from one place to another and digests all it can, living life to the fullest.

It encompasses the rising of the sun to the starry night sky symbolizing life as a compilation of days. The places the hummingbird visits are denoted by a dart ending in a red heart.

I have had many different days, the death of children, the loss of our house, the joys of running all over with my still four living children when they were young.

There is much more symbology.

I named my piece after a verse I love in psalm 34: “Taste and See that the Lord is good,” The love of the Lord has gotten me through all my flitting.
