Illustration Friday is a wonderful outlet to get artists creating on a weekly basis. It gives a word prompt, every week. This week the word is “duet.”
Hmmm…I’m sure that word does bring about songs, music, dances, couples and possibly love. It does for me, too!
But, I took a little detour from the traditional visual. What comes to my mind is the “duet” of our inner and outer selves.
You, know that duet, that dance! It’s the duet we do when we present one self to the world and keep that protected, vulnerable, beautiful self, well hidden. We all dance this duet with ourselves moment-to-moment.
Now take a breath, slow and deep…I would like to invite you to show that beautiful self that you keep hidden, that perhaps only your family sees, or your friends see or maybe only your God sees.
Maybe you can only show it for a moment, that’s okay, you get braver each time you show your true self. Peel back your winter defenses and let your spring shine!
We are all deserving of our true self, to share with others…so that our duet of self can become one beautiful dance that we can all participate in.
Peace to you and yours.
