Can You "See" It?!

10:13 AM

"Let your soul _ _ _ _ even if on borrowed wings."

I worked on this zen-word, off and on, for a couple of weeks nearly 2 years ago when grief was tugging me down. At the time, it seemed that my "wings" were too weak to lift me up. Whenever I found inspiration somewhere out on the net I let it lift me up. Sometimes, in order to SOAR, we have need to lean on others' inspiration.

I started to "colorize" it when I rediscovered it this past week and then decided to post it untouched as a free download to anyone who would like to have it! It's my way of paying back (and forward) for all the wonderful inspiration I see and read everyday in the blogosphere. If you click on the image above, it should enlarge enough so that you can print it off and colorize it to your heart's content. If that doesn't work, let me know and I'll post it over on Flickr.
