The Owl Post: Within and Without

The Owl Post: Within and Without

Deborah Cherrin April 19, 2020

These days my world seems much smaller than ever before. Everyday scenes, such as the geese swimming in the backyard pond and the ducks paddling in the tall grasses are a new source of delight and entertainment. I almost envy their freedom. Henry David Thoreau reminds us that it’s all just a matter of perspective.

For the time being I will travel in my dreams, through my memories, and with my restless imagination. I finished this collage yesterday and I love how I can’t really tell if I’m inside wishing to be out or outside seeking solace from within. Would that I could be overcome.

“The question is not what you look at, but what you see. It is only necessary to behold the least fact or phenomenon, however familiar, from a point a hair’s breadth aside from our habitual path or routine, to be overcome, enchanted by its beauty and significance.” ― Henry David Thoreau
