Open Call for Entries:  HEART
Deadline: Jan. 29     Opening Feb. 24

The heart is a symbol of love--romance at Valentines day.  The classic heart shape resembles not the human heart, but ideals of the female body.  In Old English,1000 years ago, heart carried the notion of memory, the seat of mental faculties.  This survives in our expression of learning something by heart.  And in all Asian languages the word for Mind is the same as the word for Heart--hard to imagine in the West, where we firmly place our minds and identity in our heads.  

The Latin root of courage, typically a masculine concept, is heart; the true heart unites love and bravery. The heart chakra is the center of the body, where spirit meets form, where masculine meets feminine, and the energy is of balance and integration.  In Sanskrit, it means "un-struck"--the celestial sound ringing without the clash of opposites.
