Stairway To…

Watercolor on paper, 6″x14″, 2004.

The answer to “where am I going?” doesn’t always snap right in. The same applies to finding the key component, for example, in solving a mathematical proof or any conundrum. Things arrive when they’re ready. Best case scenario, the answer you seek will slip in unannounced and unnoticed! For, it is possible it has been sitting with you the whole time. Like an amused raven on a nearby tree branch watching you struggle to identify what bird call you’ve been hearing (his) as you look around everywhere but at the raven — waiting for you to notice it perched up there the whole time. When you finally do lock eyes, the raven flies away, having achieved its goal of the joke being on you.

Go ahead and enjoy it!
