Message from the Painting:
Doesn’t Life feel like this sometimes.. In and Out and around the paths of different parts of Life. One journey to the next, One adventure to the next. Some exciting some kinda scary and all part of the adventure of Life.
Inspired by "Start Close In" by David Whyte
Start close in, don’t take the second step
or the third, start with the first thing
close in, the step you don’t want to take.
Start with the ground you know,
the pale ground beneath your feet,
your own way of starting the conversation.
Start with your own
question, give up on other
people’s questions, don’t let them
smother something simple.
To find another’s voice,
Follow your own voice,
wait until that voice
becomes a private ear
listening to another.
Start right now take a small step
you can call your own don’t follow
someone else’s heroics,
be humble and focused,
start close in, don’t mistake
that other for your own.
Start close in, don’t take
the second step or the third,
start with the first thing close in,
the step you don’t want to take.
