You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself
any direction you choose.
You’re on your own. And you know what you know.
And you are the guy who’ll decide where to go.
You will come to a place where the streets are not marked.
Some windows are lighted. But mostly they’re darked.
A place you could sprain both your elbow and chin!
Do you dare to stay out? Do you dare to go in?
How much can you lose? How much can you win?
And IF you go in, should you turn left or right…
or right-and-three-quarters? Or, maybe, not quite?
Or go around back and sneak in from behind?
Simple it’s not, I’m afraid you will find,
for a mind-maker-upper to make up his mind.
You can get so confused
that you’ll start in to race
down long wiggled roads at a break-necking pace
and grind on for miles cross weirdish wild space,
headed, I fear, toward a most useless place.
The Waiting Place…
…for people just waiting.
Waiting for a train to go
or a bus to come, or a plane to go
or the mail to come, or the rain to go
or the phone to ring, or the snow to snow
or the waiting around for a Yes or No
or waiting for their hair to grow.
Everyone is just waiting.
Whenever I feel like I’m headed for a slump, be it from a hectic schedule, sudden strange insecurities, or just a general mental block, I open up “Oh the places you’ll go” by Dr.Seuss. It’s funny how often we can forget that sometimes all we need is a little whisper in our ear, reminding us that it’s okay to take a pit stop; wait for a bus, for the storm to pass or for some inspiration to come and knock you back on your pointed boot clad feet. I felt like this shoot was the perfect way to illustrate all these little in between moments that we often find ourselves having landed in miraculously, unsure of which foot we should put forward first, unsure of how we even landed up in this strange waiting place. Sometimes I feel – and this is my honest subprofessional opinion – that the best thing to do is to put on your feel good outfit and keep trudging forward. I hope wherever you guys find yourself right now, this post reminds you that Dr. Seuss and I are cheering you on (insert dancing emoji). Have a great weekend guys! xx
