REST BEFORE SLEEP



10 Minutes before bed.........have to draw something
anything

It's a crazy drive you feel after a long day at the desk
with chaos all around you
demand upon demand
gossip and harsh tones

this need to sooth your spirit
and feed that child within
that still loves her crayons
and paper dolls

Tired and needing sleep I still reach for my journal
brown leather, 4x6, heavy cardstock pages
I love this little friend

15 minutes.......that's all I need to feel somehow refreshed
to sketch out a little being and relax my mind and
leave the day behind me.




It's all good.

Rella, i just love how you write your posts with such a simple paired down beauty...it reminds me of elizabeth berg's early books, have you read her? her style has changed and i'm not crazy about her any more but the early books i thought were amazingly well written...i love your sketch...the dress and how you put in the writing...gorgeous...

Gueeeees Whaaaaaaaaaaaaat?
Arived today in my little box? I received the sweetest little snail mail with the yummiest things. Like a wonderful tag note and beautiful napkins. and little doo-dads. Oh yeah, you did that. You are the sweetest!!!!

Your little sketch book is so very wonderful. I can't read her but she is certainly seems to have something to say.
