Figuratively Speaking - Chasing Shadows
Do you ever feel like you are chasing shadows? I live in ski country and so the phrase is used by enthusiasts to describe a bright day with the sun to your back casting shadows to guide you down the hill. That can be a slippery slope if you don't keep your eyes and body facing downhill. I understand there is a TV crime series with the same name about a missing persons unit. Go figure. The internet seems to be the place where otherwise sensible people seem to air their most controversial and ugly underwear and opinions. That, some would say, is leading to a more transparent culture. I just wonder though. We are spending a lot of time chasing these shadows and I am concerned we might miss what is really going on. Do you feel that way? I should probably stick to painting and leave deep thoughts to the philosophers...figuratively speaking.
