Walking Each Other Home (Stage 3) – 40×40/acrylic on board – in previous and upcoming blogs, we are featuring the progress on this painting. This is the first in a new series Dorsey is beginning inspired by the Ram Dass quote “We’re all just walking each other home”.
The mass migration out of Syria is all over the news here in Scotland. Europe is being taxed to find room for thousands of souls searching for refuge. I have been thinking of them all as well. It is hard to imagine having to leave your home, not knowing where to go, or how to get there. Most have walked or taken dangerous, life-threatening voyages; risking their lives to find sanctuary. And we are all the same family…the family of man. It is evident to me that our most pressing need is to find the love, the compassion and the empathy to walk awhile along side these people. Our hearts need to be open to the reality that we all can give a little toward walking these people home. It can enrich our own lives and the lives of one another to find this well in our own hearts. We are all, in reality, moving along at different paces to our own “farther in and farther up”. Our lives will be better for it. Better for learning the joy of walking each other home.
