“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost."
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
This is one of my newest paintings. The title is Deep Roots. It makes me think about how often I think I know about what is going on when I see the surface, but I don't know where the roots might be going--if they are deep or shallow.
It's so easy to make snap judgements.
It also makes me think lots about where do I go to be nourished and how deep are my roots?
And that right there is the question for all of us to write or think about today--where and how are you nourished? And how deep are your roots? Can they sustain you in the storm?
I would love to read your thoughts on the topic.
