Art: My Heart by Artist Linda O'Neill
The poem "May my heart always be open to little..." by e.e. cummings inspired me to do this piece. Here's the full poem... "May my heart always be open to little birds who are the secrets of living whatever they sing is better than to know and if men should not hear them men are old May my mind stroll about hungry and fearless and thirsty and supple and even if it's sunday may I be wrong for whenever men are right they are not young And may myself do nothing usefully and love yourself so more than truly there's never been quite such a fool who could fail pulling all the sky over him with one smile." To me, the meaning is so lovely...to always keep your heart open to the simple things in life, to love yourself and to never grow so old that you can't enjoy the simple beauty of everyday living.
