Two works of art with a similar subject; one visual―one literary.

Oil on wood

Literary
Be like the bird, who
Halting in his flight
On limb too slight
Feels it give way beneath him.
Yet sings
Knowing he hath wings.
―Victor Hugo

  1. I’m glad to have reconnected with you Robert and your weblog. I appreciate your art and insights.

    What a great verse. My attitude toward life, near exact. It allows me to take risks. Some fail, some reward. I bear in mind when I try to understand many people that are risk adverse, that they have either no wings or no interest in flight.
