Not sure if I've put the quote here...
Just in case, here it is, viewed last December, virtually on the anniversary of my deconversion, at a Da Vinci exhibition in London....
I wandered some way among gloomy rocks,
coming to the entrance of a great cavern,
in front of which I stood for some time,
stupified and incomprehending such a thing…
Suddenly two things arose in me,
fear and desire;
fear of the menacing darkness of the cavern;
desire to see if there was any marvellous thing within.
Leonardo da Vinci
That quote has expressed for sometime how I feel about the way I'm going in life....deeper and deeper into the cavern.
I haven't yet got to a point where I feel it is explored sufficiently to leave, nor am I ready to stop.
Earlier this week I nearly bolted out of the cavern and back onto solid, safe ground in brilliant daylight but I think that time has not yet come.
Still more to find out, I think....perhaps just being slightly more cautious about inching my way forward.
Anyone got a torch?
