I recieved I gift this week from an old friend which in light of my current project made my heart sink; a small book about 12cm square entitled ‘642 Tiny Things to Draw’. ARGHHH I’m on my way to my first 365 things to draw and some kind person (you know who you are) gives me another 642! Things to draw include ‘a pipsqueak’, a dreidel (yes really – definition please anyone?), ‘a glimpse’ and ‘a rolled oat’. It’s enough to send me into a decline………..however I have a sneaky feeling that I just might give it a go. Actually I got two unsolicited books as gifts this week and I randomly flicked open the second one and opened it at a chapter entitled Pure Gratitude, Infinite Thankfulness, very apt and appropriate to my intention to focus more on the glass half full than the glass half empty.
