The Void

This piece was inspired by Dokkōdō (the way of walking alone), a short work written by Miyamoto Musashi just before he died in 1645. As you fall into the void of the silhouetted samurai, I feel it resonates with the last precept, "Never stray from the Way." It also references another of his quotes, "You must understand there is more than one path to the top of the mountain." 

Your way. Your path. We can all share morals, ethics, laws, ideas, and love, but everyones way of doing things is different. To care what others will think of your methods, or to try and meet others expectations is to stray away from yourself. Trust your choices and make your own path, because the only expectations you should hold in esteem are the ones you create for yourself. The void is you, so fall into yourself and find your way.
