Reflecting

"The One Who Sees Me"
{  graphite  |  2010  }

I'm a pretty emotional person, always questioning myself, my life, my faith, and although I'm an open book I withdraw from people.  Last night I wanted to enter a drawing into DemiCon and found myself lost in reflection of my life at this time....and stayed up till 2:30am working on it.  Haven't done that in a long while.  I'm pleased with the drawing, but find myself still lost within my thoughts.  It's a healthy reminder that even though I feel alone, it doesn't mean I am.  But some times, it seems like only the birds, or the squirrel, or even the bumble bee that comes near me on the front porch really see me.  They are simple, no awareness to what this world is, just doing what God created them to do.  They see me because they see God...one might think.

Yes I know what you mean, by all the things around us, they seem to notice us more than the people or societies that we want to really see us and take notice.

That is unfortunately the way it is, but rebelling against what is is the best thing we can do.

Nice fairy drawing by the way, simply a great piece of fantasy fairy art.

I often find myself feeling lonely even when I'm surrounded by so many people. So I suppose it's the matter of connecting with the right kind that means the most to me. Maybe sometimes it's easier for us to find comfort in animals because they are so pure...

Remarkably beautiful drawing, Sara! :))
