In the park there’s a bronze sculpture of a nude man bent over in the style of ‘The Thinker’ ~ One of Auguste Rodin’s most famous sculptures. I like seeing this sculpture of a strong masculine man. It reminds me of some of the roles of masculinity; physical strength, protection and determination.
After I had returned home and turned on the computer, I saw that Google, had done a ‘Google Doodle’ with an image of Auguste Rodin’s sculpture, ‘The Thinker’ in the middle! It turns out that today would have been the 172nd birthday of the famous Parisian artist. Rather synchronistic wouldn’t you say?

The Magnificent Masculine
The first was the reminder of the magnificence of masculinity; the masculine form and the physical strength and power it holds and the direction and protection it gives. When a man is in his heart, this combination can be knee buckling for the feminine woman. In women this inspires feeling the fullness of their femininity in the protective, strong arms of the magnificent masculine.
The second thread is the life of Rodin himself. Which acts as a reminder to all you creative women out there, that art, creativity and expression is the journey through life. It is life. Mr Rodin took many turns in his art life building momentum with his continued creativity reaching worldwide fame and recognition in his 60’s. This after being rejected from Art School three times.
Life itself is an expression of our creative essence. Your life is the art school in which you are the head of all things creative. What are you going to master? What are you going to create today?
Live it. Be it. Create it.
Here’s to you and your full magnificence!
