Cellos for sheep sounds pretty strange. They don’t have thumbs, after all. They would also never be able to sit properly in their little chairs. So there you go. A bunch of sheep with a bunch of cellos, and seemingly no point of intersection. But does there really need to be? Why not just have them together for the beauty of it?
We spend a lot of time here in the US worrying how something will look. Will it be productive, cost effective, and appropriate for a certain demographic.
I’m choosing to take a step back from all that and utter that time honored reason: ‘Cuz!
Every now and then you just have to step back from that line. Your toes are getting tired anyway. Step away from the fight, the grind, the tension, and for just a few minutes let yourself be yourself. No processing. No worries. Authentic. You.
So who are you now? In this moment? How do you feel? Lighter? Open? Free? Or scared? Naked? Threatened? We’re not used to this, that’s for sure. The societal mold shapes us early and often, and will never let go until death unless we make it so. It’s up to you – I can’t do it for you, and I wouldn’t even if I could. It doesn’t have to be for long. Just a moment has the potential to be life changing.
It all boils down to trust. Trust in the universe, trust in yourself, and trust that somewhere out there in the great cosmos there are sheep playing cellos.
Be at peace friends, with yourself and with others.
