I'm having a hard time looking at the world today.

So much violence and sorrow.

I put down the newspaper and walked away from my screens. I went into the garden with paper and paints and pencils. I looked closely. I saw the lettuce, the rabbit statue, the basil and one tiny white flower. Yes, those are Nerf bullets, but they could be beetle bathtubs or tables for a fairy banquet.

I sat and drew one small beautiful place and while I sat, the light faded and I had to color the sunshine from memory.
