Going there…


#199/365 Paintings

Have you ever had the sense of going somewhere… something edging into the horizon of your awareness, still to new to name, but gives you a warm feeling nonetheless?

This horse is going there. And we are too. John O’Donohue is my current poet passion. Thanks to Sherry Richert Belul.

From his poem, “Interim”

…hold your confidence/

Don’t allow confusion to squander/

This call which is loosening/

Your roots in false ground/

That you might come free/

From all you have outgrown.

~ John O’Donohue

… Going there, wherever it may be for you, take courage from the horse. All that confidence in their legs and in nature itself.


Have a great day!

    Niya! Your horses this week are making my heart dance. I love them. AND I love that you have given me the gift of John O’Donohue back. This poem, this painting, this post — just perfect.
