Story. Drawing. Stuff.


Lauren sent me this wonderful little passage the other day and I decided to write it down, as you can see in the picture above. I love this story! So simple, beautiful, and true! I felt inspired to do a drawing loosely based on it (and, as you might notice, the drawing below is very similar to a previous drawing).

Granted, the drawing is a little bit more sadistic and violent than the story, so, you might argue that it defeats the purpose, but hey, whaddya gonna do! I'll probably try and do some drawings that are a little more true to the story...

By the way, I will most certainly be writing about my mother when we know more. I can't get started on it right now, there are soooo many things to say, and still quite a few worries... But thank you for all the kind thoughts and wishes.

The American Indians had so much wisdom. I guess all their reverence for nature brought them closer to real spirituality than the religious traditions we have today.

*Sending positive thoughts* I am beginning to see a pattern of violence here! :D Maybe it's a subconscious comment on the tale, that some things may be beyond one's control.

This drawing completely conveys my feelings/thoughts of the last couple years of life! Good one!

TkKerouac: Thank you, of course, let me know what you'd like!

Sonja: Yes! I really want to find a book with native american myths, they have such a beautiful culture.

Mariana: Oh yes! Always spot on Mariana!

Painterofdreams: Thanks so much!

That's a wonderful story! It fits into our lives so well.

I wish your mom the best of luck and recovery with whatever she's going through right now. I also wish you and your whole family the strength to get through this scary time.

My Gran was half Cherokee. She used to feed me.

I never broke it down to think of the inner battle that way (it makes it more simple, people can make it more difficult for themselves), but when faced with the two options, it's quite true.

all the best for your mum,
i hope things are okay.

Cool pics...

...u an animal fan? snakes in particular!

Are these dreams or nightmares?

Sebastien said...

Tara: Thanks so much Tara for your kind thoughts and wishes!

Taarzaan: Cool!

Anastasia: Yeah, I'd never ever thought of it like that either... Thanks for the kind thoughts :)

Ak-man: Thanks! Yeah, I guess I do love the animal world. Snakes kinda scare me though, but they are very interesting. Dreams or nightmares, how bout a bit of both?
