Daily Joys and Simple Pleasures


In The Year 2248

Extend your hand with the strongest reach.  (from PROMISES TO MYSELF, Conari Press)

 

I’m carried a letter dated December 26, 1772 around in
my journal for the month of September last year. 
Did the author of this letter have any idea while penning this letter
that 238 years later an artist would carry around their words?  Likely not.  238 years – is quite a long reach. 

I want to have an expanded awareness that when I extend my
hand with my strongest reach…I have no idea of the consequences of that
stretch.   Thinking forward to
the year 2248 gives me serious pause. 
What might words and actions might mean to someone…238 years from
now?  And how does that action look
today?  What does your strongest
reach look like?  What legacy are you creating with your words and actions?
