“Man In the Wall”

Le Passe-Muraille, Man in Wall

“The positive thinker
sees the invisible,
feels the intangible,
and achieves the impossible.”

Le Passe-Muraille, Man in Wall

“Le Passe-Muraille” is about a fictional character from a popular short story by Marcel Aymé. One day he discovers that he has a special talent and can walk through walls. The humble civil servant becomes mischievous and plays tricks on others with this new found ability.

Obviously, we can not walk through walls, but life can throw us curves that are insurmountable. It is at those times we must reassess our strengths. We can accomplish what feels and seems impossible when we stand up, brush ourselves off, and believe that things will get better.

Many of the great achievements of the world
were accomplished by
tired and discouraged men
who kept on working.

Man in the Wall caught me – fired up the desire to look at your wonderful blog as my best friend.
Your words inspire too. Each verse pierced deeply into my heart.
"We can accomplish what feels and seems impossible …." if we will exchange the links. I hope you will visit my Art by Tomas blog and your comments (our further fellowship will clear the sky above the twilight of current ambiguity of my room. Thank you in advance.
