[A man] doesn’t always know himself what he could do, but he feels by instinct, I’m good for something, even so! … I know that I cold be quite a different man! … There’s something within me, so what is it!*
Vincent van Gogh
We see our turning points as a matter of life and death.**
Something has changed.
I am nowhere near where I thought I would be,
even twenty years ago.
I think I’m coming to know
what I am good for.
Not the result of a single
When I look back,
I see there have been so many moments of
letting go and letting
Many times one leading to another
until I am good for something.
