Excellent interpretation Christie, of this piece you chose of Beverly’s art. Wonderful choice! Owl’s project calm wisdom.
Thanks Rob. The Owl was also my high school mascot! 🙂
Much wisdom in the third stanza! It’s sad when we repeat, repeat without seeing another way to make a change.
Thanks Misth. I really appreciate it 🙂💕
Nice line: “When did you start to do stupid?” I keep asking that about myself as well.
🙂 As do I Frank!! Thanks for reading.
This could be a mantra for many women trapped in abusive relationships. Good write.
Thanks so much Beverly. 🙂💕 A good look in the mirror sometimes is all you need to put the focus back on you and what you have allowed yourself to become.
Yes, wise up indeed.
Yes Paul 🙂 Thanks!
p.s. Including if that conversation is with the person in the mirror!
Yes Lisa! All of the above 🙂💕
