In the middle of this road we call our life
I found myself in a dark wood
With no clear path through.
      --- Dante Alighieri (Divine Comedy "Inferno")

Dear Rhonda this is so striking. Lots of depth here. Just wonderful. Hope all is well with you. Take care.

I was always taught to double-back, retrace my steps and see where I went wrong. I found that errors in my own thinking and pathfinding usually caused me my greatest struggles. Communicate by listening and seeking to hear everything around us. It'll put you back on the right path.

Faith not fear.
Love not hate.
Listening not talking.
Kindness not anger.

Thanks, Diana :). I appreciate you comments on this one. I am ok - running at about 50% for some reason so not posting or painting much right now. Sorry you have to sell the trees to be cut down - perhaps a few sketches or paintings (or photos for reference) before they go?
