Art Challenge. 30 Days of Drawing. Day 11
Today’s word was ‘stuck’.
I was quite stuck thinking of a theme at first and then I came up with the image of a scruffy feral cat with it’s head stuck in a tin. Anyone who owns cats will recognize that this is not uncommon! Once when I was camping and an empty dog food can was outside the tent, I woke to hear a lot of snuffling noises and found a hedgehog stuck in just the same way.
I think we all get stuck in our own fashion. The sides of the can blinker us and we can see no further than the bottom. Forever chasing fame and fortune stuck inside our own virtual tins.
Let’s step outside and slow down. Spend more time listening to people, allowing ourselves to simply be in the world and throw away the selfish goals for a while. Does it really matter if we miss that deadline? Life is short and the time we spend on fruitless objectives eats away at our ability to appreciate the simple things of life, the seasons, the sounds of nature and the little joys that we should grasp along the way.
Don’t be stuck in a tin.
Don’t be rigid in your thoughts.
There is so much to be learned and enjoyed.
