It’s been kind of a quiet, ‘low key’ day around here. I finished up my weekly grid for the art journal, watched as a recessed light was installed in the kitchen, checked my elderly ladies, then came home and snuggled with Princess Emma Mae (my grand doggy) in the recliner and read a book.
Have you ever been reading a book, or magazine and a line jumps out at you… and haunts you the rest of the day?? That happened to me today. I am reading the first book in a Nora Roberts’ Trilogy…DARK WITCH. The main character is a modern day witch, in Ireland. She has a falling out with her boyfriend… he breaks her heart. She resigns herself to being single by saying, “She wouldn’t fear what came. And she wouldn’t fear living her life alone if that’s what destiny handed her.”
Those two sentences keep re-playing in the back of my head. There has GOT to be over 70,000 words in this entire book, yet when I finish with it only those specific 19 words above will be what I remember.
In case you are interested… here’s the finished grid. I’m learning a lot with this online art journal course. As the weeks (well, months) go by I hope to improve my drawing abilities.
BTW… Please feel free to marvel at my typing skills. This entire post was typed using only one hand. Princess Emma fell asleep on my left arm and I didn’t want to disturb her.
