"A Very Merry-Go-Round in France" SOLD

“A Very Merry-Go-Round in France” 
8 x 8in oil on panel

Times spent alone, reading and getting quiet, are the very best of all.   
As the world at its dizzying space 
whirls ’round me
this place is like standing dead center in the merry-go-round.  
I can see everything going round
up and down
lights flashing
and yet I would swear I’m standing on solid, unmoving ground.  
 It’s the quiet place in this ride called
 From there
I can peer out and see that all the tumult and busyness is just an illusion.  
 From there
I can enjoy the beauty, the  music, the sights and sounds.   
From there 
I can love and heal.   
From there 
peace can be experienced.   
From there 
balance can once again be gained 
strength made manifest 
to ride upon the winds of change and time. 
in the merry-go-round of Life.   
What a ride

    Dreama, the painting is beautiful and brought back a wonderful memory to me. When my grandson was born and life was very chaotic for his two year old sister, I climbed on a carousel with her. When the music started, the smile that spread across her face was magical.ReplyCancel
