An old piece of wood was chopped and inside the most beautiful art. I took this picture realizing that what is on the outside can never truly show the beauty of the inside. The beauty and art. Sadly this wood piece was burned, but not before I made it immortal in my mind and in this photo. I felt a connection to this beauty because I have finally seen what is within me even if others don’t. I will no doubt some day end up like these two pieces of wood, but I hope before my end others will have seen what was inside of me as I have…. in myself. This could be my parable… That I too had to be split apart before I realized the beauty within that I forgot was so much more valuable then the outside.
