CROSSES ON THE ROAD OF LIFE

CROSSES ON THE ROAD OF LIFE
Mail art send to Randi Fuerhelm-Watts
4x6 - acrylic and ink on card stock


Imagine yourself floating above the ground.
On a cloudless clear blue-sky kind of day.

Below all you see are green fields,
they stretch on forever.

Breaking the green like a parting of the seas
is a long stretch of highway
and
all around stand crosses.
Like those little mileage dots on the road map.

The crosses are markers on your road of life.


Crosses you bear.
Crosses marking the spot of great personal discovery.
Crosses honoring special moments,
deep agony, joy, pain, sorrow and ecstasy.

Make today the day you acknowledge and honor your crosses.
They all played a part in what got
you to this moment.

Honor yourself today.

Oh Paula...lovely! The painting is really wonderful, but the description is incredible.

You really do get how to make that movement happen in your paintings, don't you?

Thank you so much for the beautiful reminder...

I am honored...

Hello Paula!!!

Such a lovely post - definitely something I should do more often - take time and honour the past and the path that has brought me to the present. Thanks for reminding me to do it. Your new work is really great - the piece below is beautiful. :)
