Ever get that sinking feeling?


I couldn't decide whether this is foolishness or optimism.
Foolish optimism?

It's just plain sweet, that's what it is. That purple color is fantastic.

Your piece made me smile and smile. So clever and cute.
Maybe a little scary. But if they fell through I bet you would do something cute with it.

Thanks for sharing about your daughters doing tree pose, fun to imagine.

Hey, what an interesting idea, Bella. I like this one. But what would it be like to live inside of an hourglass, I wonder. I suppose everything would be fine, until the inevitable... your world turning violently upside-down every hour, and then you're scrambling to dig out of the sand, catch your breath, and rearrange your furniture again. Then you can relax before starting it all over. Kind of Twilight Zoney.
Sorry, I always have to think these things through.

I am not sure about your question, but first I must say that is the most charming little paper cut-out tree ever! But, will the tiny critter be buried in the end? Or perhaps the sand will get tall enough for him to crawl up through and join the castle-builders? I don't know the answer, but the image is just full of possibility. :)

Thank you, Julie! I heard once that people who love purple REALLY LOVE purple, more than other color-lovers.

Thanks, Tammie. I think if I were them, I'd try to plug up that hole.

Mr. Ted, would you rather live in an hourglass or a snow globe?

Ooh, Cindy, I had not thought of the little critter crawling up to join them. I guess that would be a good thing. He could play Godzilla with their little sand villages.

Bonjour chère Bella,

Tant de questions se bousculent !
Ce sablier n'est-il pas celui de notre vie ?... Peut-on retarder la descente du sable ? Ne nous fait-il pas comprendre que chaque instant de la vie est précieux ? Le ciel, les nuages, les étoiles et les arbres sont en dehors de ce sablier... Les enfants vivent cette belle insouciance...

Une oeuvre fantastique...

Gros bisous 🎀

I always read too much into your drawing. Now I can’t sleep.

I need an update on this one as more sand falls!!!!

Falling down through the hole must be their fun, too. They can meet a new friend on the other side. I am sure the three will find new fun.
Happy Easter!

It goes both ways, these things are meant to be turned on their head.
In fact I presently have sand in my ear - may be I need to take my own advice.
But then I would have sand in my rear.

"Rear' or 'ear'. What a choice!
