We are supposed to go to flickr, find a photo that moves us, and write something about it. This one is pretty neat. It is a poster that has been partially torn off to reveal a brick wall.
Our old, compulsive selves are pretty rough and rather ugly. We continue to try and cover it with beauty and serenity but somehow, every now and then, the old self comes through. There is more of the beautiful than of the ugly which shows progress toward covering up that self we don't want to look at or be a part of. It is always there, however, and sometimes we cover it up better than at other times. The beautiful, lush path can grow and cover up the brick wall full of graffiti that someone else wrote there with the intention of defacing the brick wall that is hard and cold. Sometimes our new self can be peeled off easily. Sometimes not.
Before too much of our old self shows through we need to spread our new and beautiful self to cover it up. It can take a lot of time to create that new self. It can be destroyed relatively easily and quickly but we aren't going to let that happen. Very soon that old brick wall will be completely covered and it will stay that way.
Take care. (I messed up and didn't change the date to Thursday for this to be posted so it's up early - pretend you are reading it on Thursday please :-)
