Confusion reigns these days. What day is this? And when will things go back to normal? It’s beginning to seem like they will never be normal again, whatever the hell that is! Blah, blah, blah, you’ve heard all this before.
So as we chase our tails around the clock and calendar, perhaps we are really looking for a new perspective. That’s what came up for me in the paint recently. . .and I found a bit of hope. Now I just need a giraffe or a big bridge. . .

Time to get a new perspective on things
Look at the situation from a new vantage point
Hire some new advisors
Change the background music
Watch a new show to tickle the funny bone.
You might have to climb a hill
Or hop on the back of a giraffe
Or climb a tall tree
Or walk across a big bridge
Or stare for an hour out to sea.
But soon, even if you stay home
You will see new things and
The story you are writing about life right now
May grow a happy ending
Around the corner
Or five years hence
Find that new perspective.
