Barbara begins each new work while in a meditation . In a space between control and mystery .
Her process represents her perception of the combined spiritual and practical journey . Giving, receiving and releasing are all critical pieces of an abundant and purposeful life . The power of Courage and trust are an integral part of Barbara’s work .
” Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves , like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue . Do not now seek the answers , which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them . And the point is to live everything . Live the question now . Perhaps you will then gradually , without noticing it , live along some distant day into the answer .” — Rainier Maria Rilke
