I'm inspired. Despite a most hectic week, what remains after all has been said and done is a renewed sense of self, of right and wrong, of family, of purpose, of moving on. This painting by Derrick Guild pretty much sums up how I feel right now--especially when I ask myself that question...you know, where do I fit in in this big old world?
I've always managed to eclipse parts of myself so that I would not shake the boat. These days, I find myself wanting to have more of a presence. I don't have to be front and center but I want those within an unspecified radius of influence, to see the heart and soul of me. To see that I'm both humble and proud, quiet yet assertive, irrational yet sane. Like this pastry, which commands attention by being ALL of what it is.
