Curveball

Hello Everyone!

What?! No road trip?


No, nothing more than a friendly reminder that whatever curveball you are thrown, to just do your best. After all, Life is what happens when you are busy making plans.


An announcement that I will be back next weekend after the Holiday on Thursday. My dad's condition nosedived this Friday just past and right now, I have a full plate. I will share this little doodly philosophy with you --

Demeter.
She has definitely left the building in the Classic City, the last Indian Summer days come and gone, a brace in the air as we leave early mornings or come in after the sun goes down. That or the wet gray November that is a big part of a typical Georgia winter.

Soon Mother Nature herself will be in sleep mode here as we settle down and give a big sigh -- or in some cases, hold our breath. Some folks like to think Persephone's annual leavetaking of her mother is the reason we have autumn and winter. Don't fall for that New Age stuff.
It's about Demeter. Always has been. Always will be.

Have a great holiday, here in the States and elsewhere -- a good good week.
Candace

Hi Candace~ So sorry to hear your dad is not well. I'll keep you both in my thoughts, and so hope things get better.....great drawings as always, I love the beautiful eyes on the second lovely lady...Enjoy your holiday Candace, and when you get a chance send me your address. My email is snotfrog13@aol.com ("Snotfrog" was the name of a very loved kitty I once had...everyone asks!) Hugs, Paulette ;)

My mother is in bad shape, I can relate. Especially, there's something about knowing that things are most likely going to change radically very shortly that makes one feel on a plateau/holding one's breath, as you say. I love the wavy hair on Demeter.

Lovely girls you've drawn. I envy your ability to do hands so well, and *these* hands holding hearts are truly great. Sorry about your dad. I was thinking about mine today. He has been gone for a while now. Hold on to what you can and let go of what you have to. Love, Jeanne
