Reminding myself of the light within.

Uncategorized May 23, 2013

The traveler driving down a lonely country road at night, is encouraged by the distant twinkling lights of her destination.

But it’s the headlights of her car that keep her from driving off the road.

In life we are drawn toward the bright light of desire and distant dreams.

But only the light we carry with us, will keep our wheels on the road and our footsteps on the path.

We have to keep that light burning.


This is a re-post from last year but I needed to remind myself of this today.


My name is Lynna Goldhar Smith, or Lynna-G for short. I am a multi-disciplinary artist--I draw, paint, write, and direct live theatre whenever I can. I believe in filling my life with as much creative expression as possible and I encourage others to do the same. I am often told that I do art in too many ways to be sensible but it's just the way I roll.

    This is a beautiful post and painting, and kind of incidentally I wrote down a line of a song from the musical Godspell whicht goes: you got to stay bright to be the light of the world.
