"It comes the very moment you wake up each morning. All your wishes and hopes for the day rush at you like wild animals. And the first job each morning consists simply in shoving them all back; in listening to that other voice, taking that other point of view, letting that other larger, stronger, quieter life come flowing in. And so on, all day. Standing back from all your natural fussing and fretting; coming in out of the wind." C S Lewis, Mere Christianity

This is the completed painting.  Should be leaving early next week. I thought it might leave this past week, but they are preparing the place where it will hang right now. Preparing for the Wild to be 'caged' in a sense.
