Dark Forest

“The cradle rocks above an abyss, and common sense tells us that our existence is but a brief crack of light between two eternities of darkness.”
–Vladimir Nabokov

“Ultimately we know deeply that the other side of every fear is freedom.”
–Marilyn Ferguson

When I look up at the top of the staircase that is my life’s journey, I see a dark figure looking down at me. That dark figure is me.  It is the inner voice that says be afraid, quit, you can’t, don’t bother, you’re not good enough.

“Our moments of inspiration are not lost though we have no particular poem to show for them; for those experiences have left an indelible impression, and we are ever and anon reminded of them.”
–Henry David Thoreau

Twisted

“Everything is nothing with a twist.”
–Kurt Vonnegut

Passageway

Passageway

“The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider’s web.”
-Pablo Picasso
