Two Words

Oh, speak two words,
And speak three more.
Then let me hear
Your knock on my door.
Hold me close,
Fold me in tight.
Let me bask in
The warmth of your light.
Love, let me breathe you in
So deep and so long.
Let me sing to you
An old love song.
Let me give to you
All that I can be.
Prove to me
Every possibility.
But if my dreaming
Isn’t meant to be
Then speak another two words
And set me free.
Release your hold on me
And let me fly.
Yes, speak two words –
“Farewell” and “goodbye”.

When Two Hearts Become One – a painting

This is one of my practice gouache, the simplest of the four so it is the first one I finished! I’ll be taking a better scan of it later this week. I was focusing on different shading and blending techniques in this one.

I wound up not picking up the extra freelance job, so I spent a lot of time last week recuperating and relaxing, slowly easing back into things, until I started getting bored and feeling guilty for not being productive. Now I’m ready to get busy again, both at work and for my personal projects. It seems I have only two speeds – 180 mph and not moving at all. Someday maybe I’ll find an actual steady pace to accomplish my goals, but that time is not now.

“Courage of the heart is very rare, the stone has a power when it’s there.”

I love this quote and this movie.  It was very dark to watch as a child, as many Don Bluth films were, but it is one that sticks with me today.

Courage of the heart is rare, although it shouldn’t be.  We should all be able to find the courage to follow our heart.  But first we have to look through the noise of our daily lives and of the world around us so we know what our heart is trying to make known to us.  I like to picture my heart as a compass, and however I may get turned around, if I can center myself, I can find my way again by following that compass needle.
