Sketch of Myself/NOTES…

Greetings Friends,

Back with “Sketch of Myself” each Monday.  Many NEW ‘images ‘ are creating themselves…
Hope you’ll enjoy  these sketches as much as I do ‘penning’ them to paper.

For the many NEW persons who have joined the viewing…
If you’re wondering about how “Sketch of Myself” came to be, please go to 
www.onesingledrop.com  Click on BLOG, then “Sketch of Myself.”  This unfolding(almost two years) can be read and understood from its beginning via the inspiration of Walt Whitman.  The series of sketches unravel from there—

Sketch of Myself
Let a book ‘pic’ you…

Discover the shelf
holding the treasure
waiting for you…

What will the pages say to you?
Allow the story to come alive.
Take a role of ANY character
or become each subject.

Can you relate to the message?
Can you fill in unwritten lines
magically giving life to a story of
your own?

When you have reached the last page
and closed the cover,

rush back to the shelf
and begin again.

A book waits to ‘pic’ you.

Sketch of Myself/ Behind this wall…
                                                 There are beautiful walls
                                                    draped with windows
                                               allowing the fresh air to roll
                                                       in and sway out

                                       There are ‘entrances’ built within these
                                   walls— sometimes the doors remain opened
                                             everyone enters is welcomed…
                                                  no one is turned away.

God holds in power the soul of every living thing, AND the breath of every human body.”

Sketch of Myself/ Self-Portrait

Sketch of Myself/ Self-Portrait

      From this hour I ordain myself loos’d of limits and imaginary lines,
                        Going where I list, my own master, total and absolute,
                      Listening to others, and considering well what they say,
                             pausing, searching, receiving, contemplating,
                 Gently, but with undeniable will, divesting myself of the holds that would
                      hold me.      

                                         I inhale great draughts of space,
               The east and the west are mine, and the north and the south are mine.

                                          I am larger than I thought,
                                 I did not know I held so much goodness.

                                            All seems beautiful to me;
                 I can repeat over to men and women, You have done such good to me, I
                                       would do the same to you,

                                      I will recruit for myself and you as I go;
                            I will scatter myself among men and women as I go;
                         I will toss the new gladness and roughness among them;
                                   Whoever denies me, it shall not trouble me;
                     Whoever accepts me, he or she shall be blessed, and shall bless me…

                                                          Excerpt from the ‘Song of the Open Road’
                                                                      By Walt Whitman
