Remaining behind on the Journey

    This drawing prompts me to wonder about the boy in the drawing: who is the boy in the drawing? what is he thinking because he seems to be deep in thought? what is he feeing? The title is remaining behind and I wonder: why has he chosen to remain behind? Did the others eat with him and he chose not to go on? Did someone need to stay behind so he chose to? Is he remaining behind for some purpose? Is he afraid to go on even though he wants to go on? Does he feel alone but wishes he had others to journey with?

    Obviously, Curtis, you had ideas behind this drawing. My questions were prompted by the drawing. I don’t want to know your idea because it creates mystery for others who look at your drawing. Also, I put myself in the shoes of the boy in the drawing which creates a whole set of questions and memories. Thanks for stirring me with your amazing creativity.

    Thanks for your comments, John–especially the questions. I am finding more and more that voicing my questions are so much more important than having answers. I appreciate you sharing your stirrings, and I highly recommend all readers to check out John’s blog if you’d like to engage your heart for further stirring.

    he/she is really not that far behind, it just seems that way at times.

    Thanks for your comment, Jess! What do you think can make it seem like we’re left behind? What do you do when it seems that way? How does it play out if that perception becomes reality for you? You do not have to answer–but your comments stirred my curiosity in that direction. I welcome anyone to comment on what thoughts those questions stir in you.-Thanks RTI

    I wonder what he wrote in his journal that is behind him.
