Our souls are designed to be unconquerable unless by permission. Every time we shift responsibility for our circumstances to an external entity, we are giving permission for our soul to be conquered.
I let overgrown grass on the greens of a golf course conquer my soul. I blamed the grass for my bad performance and forgot that I was the master of my fate and the captain of my soul as we are reminded by William Ernest Henley in the poem INVICTUS.
Since visual art is the most effective method of learning I decided to make art about the lesson. I asked the greenkeeper to give me the grass after cutting the greens.
The pieces of art below were made with the grass I blamed for a dismal performance. They act as a reminder to take responsibility and maintain an unconquerable soul. It also speaks about taking responsibility and turning your troubles into triumphs.
