A lot of people are participating in WW today, so come join in the fun. Wordless Wednesday is one of my favorite memes because like a writer paints a picture using imagery, photographs, cartoons, and paintings also tell us stories. All art should stir our souls, like Franz Kafka said about books, "A book must be the ax for the frozen sea inside us." I believe his phrase is a great metaphor for all art and WW gives us the opportunity to crack the ice inside us, whether it brings forth laughter, memories, etc...it's up to our own interpretation. So, again, post a photo, that tells us a story or calls forth an emotional response.
Motherhood is an art impossible to explain, one which requires a vast sea of love, devotion, compassion, and understanding, unmatched by any affection we will ever know again.
Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.
Beatrix Potter’s Journal, 17 November 1896, from the National Trust collection.
Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light
She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free
For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well
Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination
