Caught in Past and Future.
Limited Edition Print by Mike Heseltine

Limited Edition signed print on A3 40 gms hand made paper. The paper is made in Nepal from the inner bark of the Lokta bush. Each print is signed by the artist and the print run is limited to 1000.

This drawing was inspired when an owl hovered above me one evening. For a few moments, I was oblivious to the usual chatter in my mind. There were no thoughts concerning the future, nor the past. I was totally present in the moment. The experience reminded me of a Buddhist Koan called The Strawberry, pasted below. The charcoal drawing depicts how our minds can be full of the past and future, clouding our vision. If we are not mindful, we can live our entire lives obsessed with the past and future, never experiencing the true reality of the now.

The Strawberry

A Zen Buddhist Koan

A man traveling across a field encountered a tiger. He fled and the tiger chased him.

Coming to a precipice, he caught hold of the root of a wild vine and swung himself down over the edge.

The tiger sniffed at him from above. Trembling, the man looked down to where, far below, another tiger was waiting to eat him.

Only the vine sustained him.

Two mice, one white and one black, little by little started to gnaw away the vine.

The man saw a luscious strawberry near him.

Grasping the vine with one hand, he plucked the strawberry with the other.

How sweet it tasted!
