A ha so this is the last day of the April A to Z challenge.
How was it for you?
I looked back briefly on a few of my precious A to Z challenges:
One challenge I had planned on illustrating a month of my dragon stories. I broke my wrist one month before the challenge so my dominant hand was useless. I started drawing with my non-dominant hand . During April I slipped on ice (again) so all of my arms and legs were out of commission. So with Co-vid “Stay at Home” I could at least walk around and water my plants.
The picture below shows my dragon bowl that I drew with my non-dominant hand and then the other 2 were with my mouth.
When I saw the word Zest I thought of the saying A ZEST FOR LIFE. For whatever reason I always think of the elderly patients who I have cared for since I was a teen.
So my last encouragement as you care for and love an elderly family member be a little zestful. Encourage them to dream with you. Go somewhere you can both go – an imaginary somewhere. Maybe the land of Zenony!!!
I’ve enjoyed this month and meeting or reconnecting with people.
Each of you are gifted and delightful!!!
For those of you new to blogging i hope you are encouraged to blog more.
I’m not sure what my personal blog will look like but I am trying to develop a blog for Steve Slack. Steve is a friend who hopefully (if this Co-Vid thing gets tame) will have some of his work published and at least one script is lined up for a movie.
I sit behind closed doors. Drawing pictures of ballet dancers in pink . Crumpled piles of discards about my feet. I’m reminded of cherry blossoms in spring. They dance through the cobwebs in my head and I am outside in spring’s kaleidoscope with no Co-Vid.
Infused with sunshine
cherry blossoms kiss still waters
sparks of spring
We miss the cherry blossoms they are always so cheerful and so this week I may take a few moments and draw more ballerinas.
Hope all of you are doing well. Not sure how it is for the rest of you but I am actually happy to be home writing and creating. Most of the places where I work in hospice did a close down (which was wise) – anything to prevent a spread. Be well and write!!!
