Red Bun on Toes


She is a dancer of life
embracing highs and lows (mountain tops and valleys)
She prefers being on her toes
and offering grace to the world
~

which brings back a memory:
when i was younger and i felt like i wasn't being heard
i would stand on things
i did not know why, it was not a conscious choice

maybe i thought if I was taller or higher I had a better chance of being heard 

makes me smile now

  2. what a fun drawing and loved your story too. the antlers made me sad though, hopefully they grow back though? I'm guessing they do.

    1. hi Geraldine,

      no need to feel sad, they fall off every year around this time and grow a new set. just the natural way of the deer, it is called shedding.

      wishing you a lovely day!

  7. Where is the place, where my beloved is? Why has he left me sighing here? He ran away like a deer - and he left me wounded, I ran after him and could not catch him...

  8. cute drawing. that's a nice memory.

    I used to stretch my legs while in bed, pointing my toes out as far as I can so that I would grow taller but sadly I'm still short.

    hope you have a lovely day.
