Riding the storm...



Make a list of 3 achievable goals, which you would like to accomplish in the next 13 weeks
My goals are to ....(1) get back into a good exercise routine (2) regain control of my garden (3) redecorate and organise my home.

(detail from a canvas I painted a few year ago)

The Eye of the Storm

When your world exists in the eye of the storm
the air can become stale and suffocating.
Stretch...move...breathe...

When you are the rock in the eye of the storm
you provide shelter in which others can grow.
Plant...nurture...protect...

When you are the the rock that others cling to in the storm
you can become detached from your own existence.
Claim...colour...create...
before YOU become the storm!

  4. I really relate to the idea of being the rock in the storm and needing to express yourself via some outlet to drain off some of that nervous energy. Very well done.

  10. Ah, The Storm. It's always a powerful metaphor, and in poetry it must make for an instant grab-bag of imagery. Loved the pic you included.
