Spread your wings...


It's really important to live each day to the full.

I know that may sound very cliche, but it really is true.  Life is very short and it should be treasured.  None of us have the luxury of knowing when it might be 'our time', or the time for a loved one.
So the little message today is... spread your wings.

I wasn't quite sure what to make today, so I decided to post a question on my Facebook wall to see if anyone had any requests for something special.
As it turned out, my friend Nicola responded with a lovely request.  She told me about the daughter of a friend of hers who passed away through cancer last year.  Today would have been her 16th birthday.  How could I possibly ignore that?

This one's for you Ellie, where ever you are.

'freedom' is a mixed media cutie.

I thought 'Freedom' was an apt name for her.

E is for Ellie

It feels really good to make something meaningful (to someone) instead of my usual ideas based on my daydreams or whatever takes my fancy that day.

This art has been GOOD for my soul.

If you do nothing else today, take a moment to count your blessings and...

Happy Birthday Ellie
