Follow the Elephants Never link to a lighthearted (birds-eye) view of a heavy subject.
Soon to be an Illustrated book
“It must be such a burden to bear”
How can this be?
A secret very few know-
My variable angels have no weight
It’s lessons and listening as of late
And I myself sometimes feel to float
Upon the daylight or frozen moat
My voice is a whisper then
And my very being
Do I pretend?
My limb or perhaps an invisible wing
That is- It’s invariably light
But still witness to everything
It is then that-
I can only be seen in the bright rays of the sun
Where chirping, faint barking and awakened rivers run
Not indoors where oxygen is tight
Although I still do fear the black opaque night
Often I’m visited in dreams
It’s either they or I who first arrive
Maybe unaware of the plot
But the background is just so Alive
Feeling a sense of loss
Being as the only one-
I’m here to get things done
Is it a burden?
I say “No”
For maybe she’s meant to share
(This lighthearted Being)
Both what she Saw and
What she is now Seeing.

This morning I was given an opportunity to teach a Draw Your Pet Class at a local library.
The children brought in photos of their own pet.
As I describe the process I go through when creating renderings for my shop Pupspressions, they listened intently.
First they sketched out their subject while they were to think about the personality of their pet. (The idea is to bring out the personality in the drawing.)
As the class came to an end, I realized that even though most drawings were not proportionately correct, it was the student’s innate creativity that made the Art-Work.
I think we are all born with a creative spirit, but sometimes don’t exercise it as we grow up.
Get out a pencil, or marker and keep your creative spirit alive.
