Some posts are special, here is why that is so.
IF Total, this entry for Illustration Friday is dear to me. I had this meeting with a kangaroo in early 2003 while living in a shed some five hours driving north of Sydney. It was a difficult time with a 3 year old and a baby breastfeeding. What kept me going was my new found love for drawing and painting. Every day my husband provided me with some time for it. The sound of the kangaroo bouncing away with this thump, thump thump sound. Wonderful memory, I can still hear it.
Excuse me, is suffering still allowed? and Getting what I want, getting what I need are special too. I am always aware of where and when my growth happens. Most of the time or perhaps all of the time it is at those times that life stinks and not so nice things happen. Of course I focus on the positive, sure, whenever I can. But you know to make a light go on you need the positive and the negative pole of the battery. This was a reaction to the overexposure of ‘The Secret’ and I am still in the corner that attitude is more important than whether an experience seems good or bad. It is how you deal with it that matters.
Memory Lane is all about my grandfather. He died December 3rd, 2006. I took care of him in my own way and cleaned his house for more than three years. We did so much talking and enjoyed each others company a lot. He was like my father and mother in one person. Now his house needs to be empty so other people couple can live in it. Memories are all that is left really, things are only things, that make you remember people.
In awe of my inner cells, I can look at the video every day. It makes me sing when I am down. Most of all the big blob that is sort of walking on a rope, especially that one. Not many people click on the link, too bad, you miss out on something!
