"For many, the most difficult challenge is discovering what they really want to do. For others the challenge lies in planning the life and committing to it. Others have no trouble dreaming or planning the dream, but giant, tentacled obstacles impede their everyday progress and prevent them from reaching their goals..." (page XX)
The image of the tentacled obstacles really stuck in my head, reminding me of the dreaded Creatures from the Dungeon Dimensions which appear in the Discworld novels of Sir Terry Pratchett. I thought I'd do a quick watercolour sketch, because I am definitely a person who is able to find an endless number of beasties to get in my way, even if I have to invent them myself. What came out was this:

Yes, that's me, standing in front. Its a quick and dirty scribble, but I think it is revealing (actually, probably quite scary to have this stuff in my head eh?). I didn't think about it until I had finished it, and looked at what I had done properly. Is the tentacled monster my ME? Or is it me getting in my own way? Is that, therefore, what I really think of myself?
Please leave a comment, and tell me what you think.....
