Sharon, your colorado river thru the canyon is beautiful and powerful! Please share the larger piece when you're ready!!

And thank you for posting Desiderata! It has been years since I've read/listened to it, and it has a very different--expanded--message for me today. Much more than what I received from it many years ago.

Oh,Barbara! I don't know why, but I'm crying here, reading what you just wrote. Full, poignant, grateful, happy tears...Thank you so much! Desiderata was the Muse's idea. As I was proofreading my little political statement, she kept whispering, "Go placidly amid the noise and haste...Go placidly amid the noise and haste..." and it just felt right to wrap up with it. Like you, I hadn't read it years, either, and found it to hold much deeper meaning than it did in the early seventies. Maybe we're deeper people, with a lifetime of experience in between readings. Thank you for kudos on the Inner Gorge! Thanks for visiting, and thanks for your comments! You're awesome!

Yes, what tremendous power and beauty in your words, your painting, and of course the Desiderata. Thank you so much for sharing this. I have been quite stired up discussing said legislation and I am grateful for what you've shared.

Oh, Vanessa, thank you! I guess we all needed to hear it again...words of quiet wisdom from the depth of our inner canyon. Okay, I'm starting to tear up again! Thanks so much for visiting, and leaving you mark here in my little corner of the world. I think of you often. Hugs.

I love your painting of the canyon!! "They too have their story" and "many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness" particularly struck a chord as I read the text of the Desiderata after reading your account of what happened to you in the store. It seems that nowadays people operate much too often from a place of fear... it's very saddening to think that this outlook is becoming the norm in our society rather than the exception.

Thank you Jennifer. I'm almost finished with the large scale version of the canyon picture, and can't wait to post it! While I was writing the incident at the market the Muse kept whispering "go placidly amid the noise and haste...go placidly amid the noise and haste..." I took the hint and posted the Desiderata. It seems like alot of us needed to read it again...I agree, it is long since time we were again able to engage in informed, rational political discourse.
