Spread 193 – Fork In The Road December 19, 2012

Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.

193- Fork In The RoadA few days ago I found myself saying to myself, if you feel stagnant Orly, you should feel happy. I said that because by now I have the inner knowing that from now and here, where I stand still, I should be able to see the fork in my road, the promises, the latent. I know by now that it is only when I stand still, not move, and when nothing is blurry, that a tranquil horizontal line in the far distance is clearly visible and anticipates my arrival. I also know that it is not only visible but attainable. Only when I stand here alone, feeling somewhat lonely, stuck, and motionless, that I can start walking an enchanted walk from here to there, welcoming who ever and what ever awaits for me along my trek.

I had these thoughts on my mind while choosing my journal pages to post today, and then I found this very illuminating (-: quote in a cook book I casually looked in, a quote by chef Inaki Aizpitarte: “I always try to hitchhike from my balcony but it never works.”

For me the journey is more important than the destination.

So much to love in this spread, the wild primitive peoples, color, lines, images. We all crave the solitude that brings clarity.

Thank you Orly for a new perception, a new way of looking at stagnancy. You always stretch my mind my friend. BTW I received something very interesting in my inbox today which means that you and I may have our wish to teach together AND in a very amazing place….si dios quiere xoxo

this made me very happy to see tonight on my facebook feed tonight Orly – we need such beauty, grace and colors – the roses and the pinks and the turquoise/aqua – ahhhhhhh – thanks for being a constant provider of images that touch the deeper places, as well as managing to just lighten everything up…Much love…

I wish more artists could see the latent possibilities in stagnation and not leap to the conclusion that they have run out of ideas or creativity…
Love that quote and love that it comes from a cookbook! Hitch hiking from a balcony…indeed!

There is so much to see here, as a whole, and in small chunks…..lovely. And it’s snowing on your page! I almost punched my computer because I thought it was a bug at first!
