"It is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth -- and listen to the song of that siren, till she transforms us into beasts. ... For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it might cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it." --Patrick Henry

well, that 's the truth, isn't it? thanks for the powerful quote, i happen to need it right now, the way it always seems to go--one needs and the universe will provide, many blessings to your lady drawing, a bit like a wonderful large she-spider to my imagination, that's a bit too keyed up most of the time. xo

thankfully there are people like this who can put "it" into words... just like that... and with their words allow us some room to breathe a quiet little sigh of relief and feel just a little less alone in the journey.

beautiful sketch, as always :)
