|The visionary :|
Two separate men sitting by the tree…both wondering and dreaming about what they may be.
A painter sat down about 10 feet away…was organizing his brushes and paint set for the day.
The two men could not help but notice his passionate face…as the colors hit the canvas and paint spread all over the place.
A yellow stroke…some blue… add some green for the grass…the painter was revealing some thoughts from his past.
On to the canvas he painted a dove…it represented peace and unconditional love.
Next was a man sitting quietly in a chair…reading a book representing time that he shared…
With his grandfather and all that it meant…creating a masterpiece and fully content.
The one man got up and tapped the painter on the shoulder…he asked him what he wanted to be when he was older.
The painter said the same thing that I am today…a visionary and creator that loves each day.
A visionary? What is that? Please describe…the second man walked over and said a man with blue skies.
His goals are far fetched…his dreams are not real…the guy with high hopes…you know the deal.
The two men chuckled as the painter grabbed a blank canvas and said…when you see a blank slate…what do you see? What will you get?
Confused man #1 said I see a white piece of cloth…man #2 said a boring art thing that has been bought.
The painter just smiled and grabbed his paint brush…he painted and painted until it was dusk.
He finished the piece …he explained to the men…it is my vision that I knew before I began.
I love to create…I love to see…visions that start from nothing and allow you to flow free.
You two saw a white boring canvas that I bought…I saw love exploding and a lesson to be taught…
To you two gentlemen…that you have to see…you have to know it can happen and truly believe.
Ten years later the museum displayed…that painter’s artwork and people ask each day…
How did you get here...you are lucky I see…
He always shakes his head no and says you have to believe…
You must be persistent and tenacious... even when it gets scary…
It is deep in my heart…I am a Creator and Visionary.
