Free of fear and despair, not yet bound by society’s rules, nor yet worldly enough to be anxious about her tomorrows, no dreams yet crushed, not yet burdened with
bias or prejudice or hate, a spirit not yet squeezed by defeat, a spirit free of pain and sadness, free to embrace her future, free to be all that she is.
A fresh, new person … a spirit free to soar.
This photo of my two-year old granddaughter fills my heart with all the smiles and hopes I see in her eyes. May she always retain some of the fresh free spirit that sparkles within her.
The Weekly Photo Challenge is Free Spirit. Photo credit goes to her mother, my daughter.
Below is a painting I titled Spirits of the Wood – it was the first painting I sold.
