Reflections on Art and Life


The thrill and the agony
Of a blank page
Not quite the eternal no
Not yet a sweeping yes
A sketchy maybe
Possibly perhaps
Adorned with uncertainty
And thirdguessing

The thunderbolts of heaven
Turned into dim flickering
Prone to misinterpretation

A one way ticket to Unknown
And a head full of perishable thoughts
Doesn’t seem like a wise investment
Especially when
You are out of second chances

You hitched your wagon to the star
Not knowing where you are going
But I see you as you are
As you hope to be
And as you will be
Many days from now
I see you

    Dosia, LOVE your blog. So glad I found it. Your creative talents and gifts are inspiring. Listening to your music right now as I type my comments.

    My brother is a composer, my mother is an artist, and my father was a professional musician (trumpet player). Having grown up around all that artistic talent, I appreciate the dedication and sensibility that goes into the creative process. And have utmost respect for it.

    Will be visiting you regularly. Beautiful, beautiful blog.

    You, The empty page………, the empty viewfinder…

    “You hitched your wagon to the star
    Not knowing where you are going”

    The uncertainty…….Yes that’s the thrill..
