Warning: “You’ll cry in a good way”

Elephant & Ant

Slowly, slowly I’ve been working on Ramesh Sood’s haiku tale of the love story between Elephant & Ant. I love elephants.

When I saw the story of Shirley and Jenny  on Sunshine and Chaos Maureen Ryan’s excellent blog I cried, just as Maureen had predicted “. . . in a good way”.

When you look at this remarkable film  you’ll love elephants too.

Argo Films  won 2 Emmys for the documentary The Urban Elephant. It was produced for Pbs and National Geographic.

XXXXXX to you Maureen Sunshine and Chaos

What Do Your Tears Represent?

Here’s a wonderful expression of feelings. The drawing was done several years ago  but it can be looked at again and again.  Each time it will “speak”, deepening the understanding of both the past, present and the connection between the two.

AND even though it is someone else’s drawing YOU will be able to find meaning for YOURSELF.

  See what it says to you about your life, your circumstances.  What do the 4 tears on the cheeks represent to you.  Where is she looking – outward?  inward?  past?  future? What is she looking AT.  And how does that pertain to your life?

Here’s what Maureen said about her picture:

“This drawing was actually done a few months before I got on disability (3 years ago) and shows all the various things I was sad and worried about at the time.

Doing a bit of drawing was one of the different ways I used to help deal with the unknown. The teardrop at the bottom left has an hourglass in it. I’m looking at it and it seems like and old, eaten apple.”
