I was recently chatting with my ultra cool grandma, who at nearly 90 is as web savvy as most and a faithful reader of this blog (thanks grandma)! We were talking about memories, and what we want to remember in our lives. She said that she likes to think of all of her experiences as a potpourri, some wonderful, some difficult but they all mix together to make something beautiful and fragrant. When I think of Remembering I think of a tree that lives in my head, always growing and putting off new fruit. Maybe the tree is not something I'm entirely in control of, but it is something that I want to nurture just the same.
As a little aside, some people have asked me what all this Illustration Friday stuff is about. Some of my pals thought it was something I was just doing on my own. Please check of this link: Illustration Friday to learn all about it and to see a bunch of fun stuff!
