The story behind the art – Take these broken wings

Take these broken wings art by Noelle Rollins

Title: Take these broken wings

I love the song blackbird by the beatles.  I used to listed to this song a lot years ago. I just heard it yesterday on the radio again and I was reminded of my love for it.  Some of the lyrics I love best are:  “All your life.  You were only waiting for this moment to arise.”

I love to imagine as I’m going through these journeys towards my dreams and there are times I stumble or need help. Times I feel like I’m failing or ready to give up. I imagine these lyrics.  It’s okay that I’m not “there” yet, my life has been a journey and I was only waiting for this perfect moment to get the shit done.  I’m not behind.. I’m exactly where I need to be.    Love it.
