Wisdom from Brian Andreas and StoryPeople

Sometimes a small piece of art accompanied by some solid wisdom just catches your eye. Especially so when the art is really quirky and the poetry/wisdom just so succinct.

My housemate, Hillary Banachowski, has three smallish prints on the wall in her hallway. Shortly after I moved in I noticed them. And the first one really struck me. It was exactly what I needed to read in that moment since my house has still not closed and it felt like my life was hanging on a thread. Or on the whims of my buyer. She held the thread (along with the mortgage bank).

This is what it said:

“If you hold on to the handle,

She said, it’s easier to maintain the

Illusion of control. But it’s more fun if

You just let the wind carry you.”

– Brian Andreas

Sigh, I was trying to control it and needed to trust it.  The whole house-selling process.

It’s now 10 days after my closing. It all worked out. I got some serious gray hairs in the process, and walked away with a rather large chunk of change less. But it is all good. And I’m very blessed. Very…

So this writer and artist can be found at this website.

– this is one example of his prolific work.


And another  —

I loved that my housemate has introduced this man and his work to me.
