Safe and certain

Creating our ‘art’, our ‘craft’ requires an act of love and an act of chance. To create our very best shot and see what unfolds means taking a leap.

It might work and it might not…we can’t see the future as it only exists in our mind.

The future is fear. So stay away from it and allow what is to unfold and our love of our art to be.

Brave it, do what we want now out of love and ride the wave that is the beautiful and uncertain moment that will keep unfolding.

Or we could just choose to do something safe and just work on certainties.

Watching a river

‘Old Father Thames’ by Philip Dodson

Watching the river

It flows endlessly
It flows past
The water shimmers past
The sky is reflected in it
The river is looking for the sea

The river does not fear reaching the sea
The river does not hold back
The river does not wait
The river is brimming with energy for its journey
The river knows its purpose

The river is watched by a man
He sits and watches it pass
He wonders about the river
He is taken by its purpose
He is in awe of its mighty flow

The man ponders life
The man ponders his life
The man thinks about his purpose
The man thinks about his journey
The man pauses and realises he fears the sea
