Default How To Get There - A Metaphor for Cohenís (and life in general)

This is the text from a Leunig cartoon that I've got framed and on the wall at home. I bought it from an exhibition (together with 2 others) of Leunig's some years ago.

I really believe that it is a great metaphor for Cohenís (and life in general). I read it often. It helps me when I have to make a decision, when things are tough, when in doubt, when thinking of giving up.

I hope it will help someone the way it's helped me many, many times.

How To Get There

By Michael Leunig


Go to the end of the
path until you get to
the gate.


Go through the gate
and head straight out
towards the horizon.


Keep going towards
the horizon.


Sit down and have
a rest every now
and again.


But keep on going.
Just keep on with it.


Keep on going as
far as you can.


Thatís how you
get there.

That is simplicity and perfection.
Encapsulates all our journeys in just a few sentences.
THANK YOU for putting it up!

This is totally what I needed to read right now! I have had so many obstacles the past 6 months - taken more than a few rests and thought I would never find my way back but right now....I've got my eye on the horizon again.

Thank you for posting.
