CHILD TAKING GIANT STEPS

















"Most of us arrive at a sense of self and vocation only after a long journey through alien lands. But this journey bears no resemblance to the trouble-free 'travel packages' sold by tourism industry. It is more akin to the ancient tradition of pilgrimage -- a transformative journey to a sacred center, full of hardships, darkness and peril."

(quote from LET YOUR LIFE SPEAK: LISTENING FOR THE VOICE OF VOCATION by Parker J. Palmer (2000) -- author of THE COURAGE TO TEACH)

(Above is one of my trackpad drawings from 2005, made on an iBookG4 using the Apple "Painting" program.)

Wasn't sure where I had arrived, particularly when the Taj Mahal song disappeared.

It's all good. The sun is shining again.

( btw: the best trick for making your way in the dark? move with your eyes shut. I'm serious.)

Bonne continuation, am.
