I had this dream that my life was a rolling canvas. Everyday it rolled off the sheet, bleached white, into the beach of my life. Come sunup, I’d begin to paint it with my thoughts and actions. My breathing, my living, and my dying. Some days the pictures pleased me, maybe pleased others, pleased God himself, but some days, some months, even some years, they didn’t, and I didn’t ever want to look at them again. But the thing is this . . . every day, no matter what I’d painted the day before, I got a new canvas, washed white. ‘Cause each night the tide rolled in, scrubbed it clean, and receded, taking it’s stains with it. And my dreams . . . I just stood on the beach and watched all that stuff wash out to sea.- Nothing more than ripples in the water. No canvas is ever stained clean through. Not one. Charles Martin, Chasing Fireflies
