After a long hiatus, a spark of inspiration and a great deal of nudging…
Here is my first doodle of 2020.
Half way through my 28 days of appreciation!
Discovered a nice little cafe.
Super friendly service and great coffee!
Hope to be back again next time I am in town.
You send me love songs.
I send you drawings.
Happy Valentine’s Day my love.
My almost 11 year old niece is an aspiring opera singer.
There are certain times of the day when she will most definitely be flexing her vocals.
I appreciate children’s unabashed passion for what they enjoy and their ability to just be in the moment anytime, any day and anywhere.
With small children, there are three supreme rules:
1. Never wake sleeping children.
2. Never interrupt their play.
3. Never stop them when they are deep in concentration.
On a warm, sunny winter’s day, we went to fetch my niece from school.
There were pretty spring flowers along the way, and it was lovely to see all the happy faces coming out of school after a busy day.
Most of all, to see that one special little face emerge, happy and excited that I get to come and fetch her from school.
I showed my niece Chloe my recent drawings, and she said, I want to watch you draw.
So I drew a doodle of myself, then she said, now add a sunflower next to you!
She told me that she is my sunflower, always smiling.
I am thankful to have this little girl in my life.
This does not require any explanation.
I have joined the backpack brigade.
After complaining about a sore back, my daughter suggested I try using a small backpack on my days off and travel days to alleviate the stress on my shoulders.
And now I love my backpack!
That first sip of coffee is sometimes the reason I get out of bed.
