Halloween Look - The Unfinished10/30/2013
"Life is always unfinished business"
In the midst of the whirling day, In the hectic rush to be doing, In the frantic pace of life, Pause here for a moment.
Catch your breath; Relax your body;
Loosen your grip on life.
Consider that our lives are always unfinished business;
Imagine that the picture of our being is never complete;
Allow your life to be a work in progress.
Do not hurry to mold the masterpiece;
Do not rush to finish the picture;
Do not be impatient to complete the drawing.
From beckoning birth to dawning death we are in process,
And always there is more to be done.
Do not let the incompleteness weigh on your spirit-
Do not despair that imperfection marks your every day;
Do not fear that we are still in the making.
Let us instead be grateful that the world is still to be created;
Let us give thanks that we can be more than we are;
Let us celebrate the power of the incomplete;
For life is always unfinished business.
- (Richard Gilbert)
I really wanted to create a look for Halloween. I had a rough idea of a doll in mind but this look kind of took shape as I went on applying the makeup. It is said that ghosts exist coz they have some unfinished business that they need to do. Once they complete this task then only can their soul rest in peace. This thought came to mind while creating this look of something being unfinished....hence I decided to give a rough incomplete edge to it. The sadness that this doll is feeling as she is incomplete and lacks an identity. I don't know if I have been able to express myself and my thoughts behind this but I hope you like the look. Waiting to hear back from you :)
