Words this time… with a twist

  • About writing and expressing thoughts
    After some feeble attempts to write personal thoughts on this blog, I have realized from the beginning that I am not a writer.

    There are so many authors of blogs who can artfully place words together containing wonderful structure, grammar and most of all, logical sense. This is not one of them. I stopped trying to pontificate my thoughts through the written form and focus more on expressing in a way I have always done since I was a kid: attempting to draw.

As with life, so many unexpected tragedies fall upon all of us. This is one of those times.

So my goal to post drawings at least once a week has stopped… until the latest speed bump is cautiously passed over.

Once the very faint light in the distance becomes clearer and in focus, I am hoping the artwork will once again flow.

I will be taking a quick flight to Virginia to check up on things… maybe this trek will relieve my anxiety.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by.

The alien is a bit distracted by the sprouting flower.

As you can see, he’d rather investigate than complete his mission:
