Today, there aren't any sketches to share or tutorials on art.
Instead, I'd like to make a special request. Something personal.
I've very recently received some devastating news from a friend who had been missing from the landscape of my life. While I had noted the absence, I did not reach out to them. Even when this lovely person had crossed my mind several times, I wasn't tuned into my intuition that said, "pay attention."
When I saw a post on FaceBook, I mistakenly thought all was well.
Intuition is easily and often overlooked.
We're all going a hundred miles an hour with family and jobs and other activities.
For these reasons, I'm going to ask that you look around your life and note any absences from your life of friends or family, near or far.
And then I'm going to ask you to reach out to them.
Make a call, send them an email, a message on FB or stop by their house.
All may be well.
It might not.
But knowing that you cared and reach out may make the burdens of living a little easier to bear.
And you won't be left with a pocketful of wishes of what might have been.
I've closed the comments on this post because I want you to reach out to someone you've not heard from in a while rather than me.
Please, for me and for my friend, in the name of friendship…reach out to someone.
