Fly away, just fly away

Original art by Steve Cieslawski.
If I thought about it longer, I might interpret this differently.  Upon first sight, I thought of all those whom we carry,  pull along behind us,  somehow never manage to escape fully.  As a visual, it becomes much easier to imagine simply cutting the strings.

an interesting exercise...to attach names/snapshots of those who haunt you (me/you/all of us) to kite strings and then let them go, to fly far, far out of sight.

Susan - I know there are ways to be freer than some of us are of these ghosts. It seemed finality could be possible by the act of cutting strings. Anyway, that, in a circular fashion, is the story the painting told me. xo
