I was first introduced to Andy Goldsworthy's work in college, as a beginning photo student, learning how to use a film camera and develop my own photographs.
I was struck by the process of his work, how little control he had over the outcome, nature always having the upper-hand.
 

I recently picked up 'Hand To Earth, Andy Goldsworthy Sculpture 1976-1990', and was reminded again of the beauty of his work, and his ability to surrender to his process. We spend so much time fighting the potential collapse, holding on so tight to what we're afraid of losing. Forgetting that process itself can be our teacher, that if can we let go of the fear of losing control, we have nothing left to lose. 

I've spent so much of my own life fighting this potential collapse, trapped by it, driven by result.

If I finally have enough money to...

If I finally reach a certain level of success...

If I finally find a way to be the perfect mother, daughter, wife, friend...

All that clinging to results, to some finality I imagined was waiting for me at the end of all these paths. The truth is, process is all we have. The moment before the collapse is THE moment. There isn't another one like it, and everything is held in that moment. All the things that we are trying to be, that we already are, are in that moment.

If we can surrender to being in process, to meeting ourselves (and each other) completely as we are at any given moment, then the results aren't relevant anymore. We stop clinging to what might happen next, and are free to enjoy just being.
