The Healin' Symbols is a language I've been working on for 35 years. It is 27 images and words that do not go together., but tell the story of our  lives from beginning to end. One of the symbols is SILENCE (a still life), a vase of flowers.  It represents the way our culture is obsessed with A/I, tech devices, tv, things that take us away from the beauty that surrounds us. Hence the vase of flowers - something to meditate on, appreciate this beautiful natural world we have.
