Private conclusions can't stand alone
Life brings up many questions. It’s as if there is a riddle to be solved. Answers are needed. After many years of pondering these matters, I would like to share what I have arrived at, or, put another way, what I am left with. All has been stripped and honed down with time. Naturally, there is a need to reach out to others for confirmation and support. It is not always enough to have your private conclusions. Comments to others, whether listened to or not, complete the process. It can be nourishing and reaffirming. People can be even helpful. If they oppose what you are saying, it still can refine their thinking or yours.
Since I am no longer young, my words and drawings have a chance to reach out beyond my immediate parameters.
