“The Heart Always Knows”
12 x 12in oil on museum quality panel
Tripping lightly down the ribbon like roads of French countryside—the heart is often seized upon by such unexpected delights.
The stage has been set long ago—beginning with stone foundations placed by another generation—with each newcomer adding their own vision. Maybe a new door, a grapevine planted, or in this case… a couple of hanging baskets.
It has taken on a life– a magic of its own, with all the pieces of a beautiful puzzle falling into place.
To the naked eye it might just seem a bit of a jumble, like it needs to be “neated up”.
To those that see with the heart
it is exactly right!
And speaking of the heart….
The most valuable possession you can own is an open heart.
Your heart always knows what’s important…. though it will never shout to be heard. it will never speak above a whisper.
But if you learn how to heed it, how to hear it, you will never feel lost in the world.
…the heart sees what is invisible to the eye.
~H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma–which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart….
