Preparing for our trip yesterday felt like slogging through cold molasses.
One disaster after another all. day. long.
Even though it was the last thing I wanted to do, sitting down to draw made it all disappear.
I didn't have anyone in particular in mind as I sketched, so I was astounded when I finished this face, and it put a lot into perspective, leaving me in a puddle of tears.
This appears to be a younger version of an acquaintance that I ran into this week. I knew that she was about to finish cancer treatment the last time I saw her. This week I saw her at her place of work and was anxious to ask her how she was doing, only to find that she'd developed new tumors and was in a lot of pain and quite ill. And yet she was at work.
As annoying as my day was yesterday, I have much to be grateful for.
Including that reminder.
Thank you Gwen, for your example.
