Translucence (Revisited)


In the age of nothing to lose.

You want me and you wave me by,

-my middle is on fire-

It crackles, ablaze, an autonomous smolder.


In my translucence

I gather kindling,

clean the fireplace,

and sweep the hearth

of a fire that needs no nurturing.


Outside, the day is particled with necessities

And there I toil-

tend to the timely turning over of soil,

I welcome daylight

and you in the distance


Let’s make the most of this translucence

In the age of nothing to lose.

Let’s turn wanting into heartspace

We will crackle, blaze and rage!

There is nothing to lose.

Giorgia Madiai Fuchs

Giorgia is a painter from Livorno, Italy... This says nothing of her depth. She is the daughter of a painter... This evokes storytelling I am not prepared for (yet). I could speak of Giorgia's heart work and its impact on my work and my heart... I hope there will be time and space to say such things and it is surely my ambition. I will only say now that her hearts have inescapable truths to tell. Turn each one over, many times. Listen. The messages there are for you. 
Giorgia's paintings can be experienced virtually on InstagramFacebook, and Tumblr. Her studios are in Barga, Italy and wherever she sets the stage with her canvas and color. For more information about Giorgia's work and live painting exhibits, email me directly at
