New look, same Notes on a Napkin...

Pilgrim
(by: Anne Morrow Lindbergh)

This is a road
     One walks alone,
Narrow the track
     And overgrown.

Dark is the way
     And hard to find,
When the last village
     Drops behind.

Never a footfall
     Light to show
Fellow Traveler--
     Yet I know

Someone before
     Has trudged his load
In the same footsteps--
     This is a road.

Dear Readers,

I decided to begin the first post of my "new and improved" blog with this poem because it resonates with me during this period of my life. Reading it for the first time a few weeks ago, I  immediately thought of my own introspective 'pilgrimage' this year. Everyone has a personal journey that one must 'walk alone' and although it may seem lonely at times, I am comforted to know that it has been taken before.

The reincarnation of my blog is the result of a lot of personal decisions, one of which is to more actively incorporate my creative energy into my everyday routine. More recently, I have felt an intense desire to share things that inspire me with others: photos, thoughts, poems, conversations with strangers, etc. I will share something that inspires me every day with the goal of keeping myself busy, documenting inspiring things for my own art, and in the hopes that like-minded individuals will see or read something to get the creative juices flowing.  :)

I would love to have feedback so do not hesitate to leave a comment!

Thank you, and enjoy...
