What I MUST do...

My Gift to you!

To feel whole I must draw. Is there something you must do to feel whole? I know my husband loves to be in the kitchen after a morning of searching through the cookbooks we have collected. My son Drew is always taking things apart and putting them back together....and Ivy MUST sing...she just has is who she is. Of late I have found myself with pen in hand and scraps of favorite papers...drawing... it is just what comes, never planned...must be drawing.

These are the latest of drawings from my pen...

This is my favorite pen. I can just imagine it being gifted to it's first owner. I wonder the glee felt have a desire place in your hand... to let forth stories of the latest flower found blooming in your garden, or the house guest whom just left for visits afar. The tale this pen has know. The hands that have touched its mother of pearl handle. The loved one who mended it back so carefully after an awful accident left the pen in pieces...and now it draws for me the images that must come out.
