what lies a head?

So out walking at Mount Stewart again and saw this raw wood carving. I find the whole process fascinating. That a carpenter/sculptor can see the end product in a discarded tree. That takes skill. It requires you to see beyond the "now" , of an old damaged, fallen piece of wood and perceive the "not yet". , this beautiful representation of a horse. May we be driven by the "what ifs" in this new year -, by seeing potential in fallen things and not being deflected by their outward appearances. at this time, in this state. From such a small investment of trust is true transformation birthed.
