The Path To Everlasting Consciousness And Love (A Yellow Brick Road Remix)

The obstacles we find on the path to Everlasting Consciousness….

The road we travel is often paved with the things that stand in our way.

as I started my journey….

i looked

to the memories behind me

– only once

as i walked along the path

i remembered

the things I’ve forgotten

– only yesterday

as you join me

i embrace

what we share together

– only forever

on the path to Everlasting Love….

    What a fascinating image and a very effective blend of words and visuals. Particularly like the rocks in the foreground and the depth of the image. Well done !

    • You know you and I are always exploring new ground in our work. I am always inspired by yours…seeing something beautiful, new, and provacative. This piece contains 3 layers, (3 photos). Sometimes it is a challenge to balance everything.

  13. Such beautiful words and the awesome picture complimenting it.

    I must say waltersmith3rd, I have been missing a great deal by not visiting your blog more often. The scroll through the blog was like a ‘soothing journey’ which I should be making more often.

    And yes, so elating & thrilling to know that someone from this beautiful world actually comments on my blogs so often. Am I not so fortunate :).
