A Poem

Sometimes life is hard to live with all its trials and tribulations
It seems a never ending stream of sadness, anger, devastations
Another bill, another end
The loss of just the smallest friend
It makes me want to sit and cry
Why is it that we even try?

Because there is another day
And good thing could come our way
A brand new plan for changing life
an ease up for the current strife
Maybe there's a brand new friend
A way to feel good again

I just noticed a few minutes ago that Coda, my hamster, is dead. I needed some way to express it and a poem was it. A sketch just wasn't going to work for me this time. It is going to be hard to go to work in a couple of hours but it will have to happen.
Ani and I are now petless. I really never thought I would get so upset over the deaths of our hamsters. They really are very small little friends, but they must have made quite an impact.

Learning the Uke

The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.

Cats in Paris: a Book Review

In Montreal adult coloring books are everywhere. When we came back to the states a couple of months ago I found they were popular here too. I really enjoy them and am very particular about what I pick. I like a lot of fine details mixed with whimsy.

Cats in Paris by Won-Sun Jang is simply beautiful. It begins with a sort of tour of Paris, with cats of course. There is a bit of narrative in this portion as well. The art is beautiful but not quite the page covering design work I personally love. The rest of the book makes up for it though. There are patterns and intri'cat' designs. The artwork throughout is beautifully done and a joy to fill in. I am so happy to be able to while away my quiet moments with this book.

Have you seen this video by Louie Giglio yet? It is really amazing to see how the universe proclaims God's glory. Take some time to watch it. God really is indescribable.
