The beginning of a new year seems to be a good time to look back on the old and look forward to the new, and so some type of retrospective of our illustration and story posts also seems appropriate.
(These are shown above from left to right. Links to the full illustrations and posts follow.)
First “Most Popular” Post September 2019
“The Gift Of Listening” You can read it in full here if you’d like. (The real message of this post is perhaps found in this brief excerpt: “I write this because it seems at times people have lost their connection to the earth beneath their feet and the animals with which we share it. From there, it is a quick step to losing our connection with other people.” I’m still bothered by the divisions and hostilities between groups I see on the news each day.)
Second “Most Popular” Post September 2019
“More Alike Than We Realize” read it in full here if you’d like. (This post could be considered a follow-up to “The Gift Of Listening” because it is a reminder that we as people are more alike than we realize even though there are divisions and conflicts all around us.)
Third “Most Popular” Post September 2019
“There’s More Than One Kind Of Dancing In Paris!” You can read it in full here if you’d like. (This post features Pearl dancing in a famous poster by Toulouse Lautrec. It is part of the novel we hope to have published soon titled “How To Explain Christmas To Chickens.”)
Thanks for joining me on this retrospective of our illustration and story posts. I have enjoyed this chance to look back and see what you as readers enjoyed the most!
