Snow Ball!

Something to think about...
The definition of mentor is "an experienced and trusted adviser."
And dementors are "soul-sucking fiends who cause people who encounter them for too long to lose their minds."

I have been trying to release my dementors and replace them with real mentors. Not only am I meeting some really cool people, but I find my dependence on chocolate to be dwindling. :-)

Last week, one of my mentors challenged me to draw a snowball. We had been talking about how "good stuff" we do is all white and fluffy and accumulates - often without our noticing, but then one mistake and all we see is that tiny black flake against all the white. Or, rather, that's how I tend to see it. I need to re-see it as the tiny speck getting absorbed into the white mass and disappearing. So, she told me to create a picture of that snowball...

I am SO bad at following directions exactly! No! That's my little black speck... let's see... re-phrase, re-phrase... "I am too creative to accept a challenge at face value and I am determined to inject my perspective and personality into anything I decide to follow through with."

That said.... welcome to my "SnowBall"...


A great time was had by all!

And this morning, my Mini-Me said "OMG! Show me how to draw a Snow Ball too!" I told her, all she had to do was stack a few circles and I went to work out on the Wii...


In true snowball fashion... ("I am too creative to accept a challenge at face value and I am determined to inject my perspective and personality into anything I decide to follow through with." )... Lilah improved on the party with ball gowns and better music. In fact, her Ball got so "hot" it brought on Spring and everyone started melting. Note the puddled snowman in the upper left.

I hope everyone stays warm and safe throughout the upcoming blizzard. And here's hoping this snow is at least good for making snow-people!

  2. Thank you, Lilah. I was reading this on my iPhone and the pictures were very tiny. I would not have caught the double meaning of "Snow Ball" without your lovely illustration. I've been smiling all morning.
