Thanksgiving

Thanks to the people who built this park by the river. They built it long before the modern scourges of pollution, overdevelopment, loss of natural habitat and the technological distractions that obliterate intimate moments in our personal existence. I hope you get outside today and see that Heaven is right here. Now!
Or look out the window or look into the eyes of those whom you love. It's the same.

Okay, that's it. Happy Thanksgiving day.

Processing

Everything I do in my sketchbook (even drawing the ducks) is an attempt to make sense of the world or is an attempt to reconcile some aspects of the world that disturb me.

On November 9th, the world awoke to the news that America would have a new president who, to put it mildly, departs from the norm. There were many reactions to this news. People will be making adjustments for a long time. Some will wait anxiously. Some will feel liberated to violence. I for one, will continue to draw Nature and search for any context that bolsters hope for constructive solutions to difficult problems and most of all, tolerance and peace.
But right now, I just see tangles.
