The Illustration Friday word of the week is journey.
It seems so fitting that this week’s word is also the title of the painting I use for this blog’s masthead. If I was looking for an external confirmation of my intuition, this would surely be it…
The outer journey is wearing on me these days…and the Inner Journey is calling. (Read the previous post here for more details on this.) I will be taking a leave of absence from blogging for a while…don’t wait up! In the meantime, there is a year’s worth of meaty posts here to catch up on, and if you want to chat like we have been doing (you know who you are), please feel free to drop me a line at email@example.com.
Still ’round the corner there may wait, a new road or a secret gate. And though I oft have passed them by, a day will come at last when I shall take the hidden paths that run west of the moon, east of the sun.
