This is Swampyank’s copy of “The Jury” by John Morgan, painted in 1861, and now in the Bucks County Museum in England. More information about the painting can be found here: [|inline= (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Who is your court and jury?

It would be nice if we could all dance or walk to the beat of our own drummer.  Oftentimes, though, someone else’s drummer turns out to be the one you listen to.   Since we are all unique individuals, it doesn’t make sense to match up exactly to other people.  It’s as if there’s a court and jury in your head, condemning you to a life lived the way others think you should live.    I have heard the term “the voice in my head” or “the committee” that references who or what we listen to.  Try listening to your own still voice.  Once you do, you will be following your heart.  And realizing you don’t have to be perfect.

I am an optimistic, positive person who is a seven year cancer survivor. Since that time I have learned that getting a cancer diagnosis does not always mean an automatic death sentence. I like to share my hope with others and continue to encourage them - no matter who they are or what they need encouragement for. I write poems, prayers, articles, and stories. Recently the premiere issue of my online magazine, launched. Thank you for visiting!

  1. Me too, I loved how the painter captured what usually goes on in a jury – some sleeping, some taking notes, some talking, some bored…Sometimes WordPress offers me picture suggestions that would be great, if they were in public domain. Luckily, this one was. 🙂 I probably should get hooked into a website that is crawling with public domain picks in any topic. Any suggestions?

  2. Love the image 🙂 I think you should do this more often.
