This is my entry for The Three Muses Challenge this week (Quotes and Quips) which required that we create art around one of our favorite quotes. I am not sure who originally coined the phrase "It is not the destination but the journey" and it has been rephrased in numerous ways- but I like what it says. Isn't it truly what we learn and experience along our path (metaphorically and real) that really matters. If and when we do reach our "destination" we are bigger and better than when we set out-having grown from the experience.
I created this piece using a personal photo I took (from a road trip 30 years ago to the Grand Canyon) symbolizing someone young , inexperienced and with an open road ahead. Looking back I remember wondering where the Canyon was; (as it was we fell into it at the end of this road) and we had in fact been "there" the whole time. Good times.
