These weekend has given me a lot of time to sit and listen to people far wiser than me via General Conference while working on a few more envelopes for various people, friends. I'm so grateful that there are kind, sincere and trustworthy voices in a world that is belching with discord and anger and I find some solace in knowing that leadership still can be found despite the apparent drought of integrity that we see so much of.
Nonetheless, I went back to my doodling of insects, something I love, for one envelope. There is something magical about the contrast of black and red on the backs of ladybugs! I also did an envelope for some young, yet insightful new parents that just lost their firstborn during childbirth. Finally, I returned to the sea for a quick doodle of an octopus for yet another envelope to send out this week. There is so much color in the ocean, and I find myself going back to fish and other things therein to explore with the pen.
