Day 9 - 29 faces
a cartoon version of myself
holding your heart in my hands.
It's safe there.
and day 10...
red and green Sharpie markers.
A bit of painting last night...acrylic on paper...
I'm not so good lately with taking progress shots...
seems like all of a sudden,
i realize i'm almost done
and i've only taken one photo.
I work full time in an office setting (for now)
where money seems to be
the topic of discussion on most days.
Making money, saving money,
lack of money, RRSPs, pension plans...
When i first started this painting,
i had absolutely no idea what i wanted to paint.
And almost as soon as i finished it,
i saw myself in this little pig tailed girl...
standing on a mountain of money,
oblivious to the flying money around her...
holding a sign that reads: true
She is not concerned about what goes on around her.
She is concerned about TRUTH.
The air she breathes.
Waking up in the morning to a new day.
Too many people sacrifice happiness
and peace of mind
for the promise of a financially secure future.
But not this girl.
She knows her path in life
regardless of what foolishness goes on
She may not be rich at the bank
but she's rich in the heart.
I may have shared this video already,
but i love it so much,
i wanted to share it again.
For those who may not have seen it.
A wonderful reminder
that the simple things in life
can be the best...
