Some days the most creative thing to do is to share another's work. I hope you enjoy this new painting by The Dream combined with words from Anam Cara by the late John O'Donohue.

I arise today
through the strength of heaven, light of sun,
Radiance of moon,
Splendor of fire,
Speed of lightning,
Swiftness of wind,
Depth of sea,
Stability of earth,
Firmness of rock.

"The Deer's Cry" (Trans. Kuno Meyer)

'The Dream' is very good. I love the John O'D - thanks for introducing me to him.

Thank you so much for featuring my "Happy, Joyous, and Free" painting. You're so SWEET - and a creative wonder yourself!

I prefer this translation to the one I quoted from another book of O'Donohue's. It most resembles the sung version that gives me goosebumps.
