THE HERO’S JOURNEY BY DAN BEAM, ACRYLIC ON CANVAS

 

Before the journey, ask the question…”Where do I begin?”

And watch a tangle of images and allegories come rolling forth:

overripe and fading fruit,

a house plant that needs repotting

a spinning wheel,

symbols of wisdom, spirits,

and ancient connections.

I don’t know where they leave off and I begin.

I don’t know if I am creating or leaving me,

I only know that I am dressed and ready…
