Desiderata

I’ve been working on a piece for 3 weeks now, inspired by the vastly insightful Max Ehrmann’s poem Desiderata.  It is an outline of life lessons in poem form. The line “be gentle with yourself”, is important to me first, because it is a beautiful thing. Second, it is the diving board for the best section,

“You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.”

SOO GOOD. Read that 20 times and then go for a run.

 

Lets celebrate your awesomeness with a vote. Which do you prefer A. or B. ?

A. or B.

    I like A. It seems a little more subtle, which is why I like it. This was a hard choice! I liked them both really well, actually, but I think I like A.
