I was at a crossroad and I knew it.

Whew!!!   Day 14
As I sat down to draw this piece I wasn't in the mood for it.  
I was at a crossroads and I knew it. 
I could justifiably not do it all. 
My very loud chatter mind was reinforcing those thoughts with all sorts of logical explanations why it would be alright to just not draw today. 
I sat at my table, tapping my fingers, trying to figure out what to do,  I felt this ever so faint urging to just begin.  
There were no words being spoken just this gentle feeling within.
It was as if the pausing at the table... being what was necessary to feel the prompting.
Memories returned of times I had been at crossroads before and how I felt when I took the higher road.
Steadily the fire within was rekindled.  My enjoyment of creating art began to return.
As if to knock the chatter mind out of the way,  I picked up a ball point pen and began drawing.
Drawing with a pen was unfamiliar to me.  It's seems so permanent.
I wasn't concerned about the outcome.
 I had begun and that was the most important step to make.
The first step.
Forward movement had been revived.
Not thinking, just drawing.
I wasn't long that the chatter mind was no longer prominent and I was in the moment.
Reaping the reward of taking the higher road.
I believe this piece of art simulates a stoic stance vital at a time when we are faced with a crossroads.
Stand confident ~ Take the higher road.

Thank You for all of your support and encouragement.
I couldn't do this without YOU!
