The Old Man...

 
Sinking to my knees
I feel the earth between my fingers
Touching the face....
Connecting
With the wise old man.....

God, this brought tears to my eyes. Man, this one came right out of the depth of your soul. I think this is one of my favorite. I know I have many, but this punched me in the gut and tore at my heart. So beautiful. I cannot get over how this just continually flows out you. Amazing Derick. Hugs, Robin

robin,
The original image of this was of a waterlogged piece of ground after a particular hectic downpour in my garden.
Creating the new image happened in a moment and the words flow with that moment.
They seem to float into my head and are written before i even have time to reflect.
It all comes down to surrender and the letting go and then the flow increases.
i thank you for your unwavering support and honesty in the comments that are posted here.
They are appreciated.
Mille grazie
Namaste
Take care
