It feels so good to help people. It's likea drug that makes you want to do it again and again. I think that's why I love illustration. It's a way to use what talents I have to help people or make them smile. I recently completed a little illustration for someone who gave it to her husband as an anniversary gift. She said that he loved it and got all misty-eyed. And I was just so thrilled that I got to help that moment happen. And I want to do it again.

There are things to focus on when you have bad days that make you happy. This is what I will choose to focus on. I don't have to be grouchy or put out because something doesn't go smoothly or doesn't go my way. I just need to remember that while the bad stuff is happening. I know. I'll write it on my hand.
