A diptych for two

Wall Dyptych
Sometimes you have so much to say. You want to express all that your heart feels. And you search for the words. The perfect words. Yet, you can't seem to find them. And in the end all you are left with is silence. And you hope, you really hope, it's understood.

“With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.” 
Max Ehrmann, Desiderata

Happy Friday.

A foggy morning walk

Untitled Untitled Untitled Dyptych 1 Untitled Dyptych 2 Untitled Dyptych 3
There's something mysteriously magical about foggy mornings. When walking through fog I feel as though I'm entering a different world. A little escape from the every day world. And when joined by a good friend and my camera it makes a pretty perfect escape. Lately, I've been thinking a lot. Thinking about things I want to do, things I want to achieve, things I want to try, things I want to change. But with all these things comes fear. Fear of failure, fear of not being good enough, fear of disappointment. As humans, we all have dreams and we all have fears. But should we let our fears overshadow our dreams? And if we never try, how will we ever know? And I think I rather live with failure than live with regret. At least by trying I will know, I will experience, I will grow, and I will learn. And so I've made a pact with myself to make some positive changes. And to just do. 

“My Heart Is Afraid that it will have to suffer," the boy told the alchemist one night as they looked up at the moonless sky.

"Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams.” 

― Paulo CoelhoThe Alchemist
