As part of what have been many farewells this week - I went drawing this evening with two of my former coworkers for what might be the last Wednesday night drawing hangout for a long time. Kevin, Danny and myself. We didn't get much time to draw, kind of a late start but it wasn't about the drawing tonight... we just wanted to hang out and chat about whatever. The outpouring of support and encouragement I have received from family, friends and followers has touched me deeply. This became apparent as I scribbled, erased, scribbled and erased, trying to find something clever to draw. I set out to come up with a new page for my book but no ideas presented themselves.
Before I knew I had a gentle looking old monster listening, intently, to his furry little hamster companion. I'm the hamster in this image - I realized - balancing on the strong hand of support of a wise and caring friend.
