|5/11/21 Mt. Rainier from Maple Leaf Park|
The last time I sketched Mt. Rainier from life, I had been feeling bitter, angry and sorry for myself about the pandemic, and I needed Her Majesty to give me a well-deserved kick in the head, which she did. This time, it wasn’t a kick. It was more like a hug, and I felt my heart swell with joy and gratitude for all that my life and this world offer me every day. Every minute. Whether I deserve it or not.
