Painting: I Will Learn (inspired by Mumford & Sons)
In a season of a thousand things we can’t control and a thousand circumstances we wouldn’t have chosen, Gandalf’s words are so fitting:
“I wish it need not have happened in my time,” said Frodo.
“So do I,” said Gandalf, “and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”
-J. R. R. Tolkien (The Fellowship of the Ring)
So I hang this painting on the wall and sing along with Mumford & Sons at the top of my voice:
“I will learn, I will learn to love the skies I’m under.”
-Mumford & Sons (Hopeless Wanderer)
