Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Matthew 6:34

Two weeks ago, I had an episode in which I worried myself into a tizzy and I didn’t sleep a wink until the next evening. If you’re not familiar with the term “tizzy”, read the definition here.

I was worried about not worrying enough about my life and the direction it has taken.

When I start to think about all the stuff that other people worry about and how I used to worry about the same crap and how I don’t any more, it worries me that I can let it go so easily. I sometimes think that I am doing something terribly wrong and nobody else does it because they know something I don’t and I’m afraid the feeling may come back so strongly that I feel the need to get another corporate job with benefits and paid vacations and an expense account complete with expense reports and PDO request forms.

What a nightmare.

Anyhoo – I really like this sketch. I started adding color before it was finished, therefore, the features are slightly larger than in other sketches. I went nuts with the color. This is a texture fest more than anything.


Outlaw Strawberry Shortcake

He’s an outlaw with a wooden stove pipe hat. He has to pay that guy to hold his hat on because it’s just a block of wood.

I didn’t make this up.

My friend, Mark did.

My advice to anyone who has decided to take the leap of faith and change directions in their life is listen to the small still voice in your heart. You may call it your conscience, the holy spirit or anything else for that matter. The point is, that is what steered you to make the choice in the first place and it will never steer you in a bad direction. For some reason we don’t trust it fully.

I challenge you to listen to this voice and give it weight in your decision making. See what happens.

The Oldies

I asked Stephen to name this sketch. When he came up with this name, I asked him how he came up with it. He said, “Because they’re dinosaurs.”

Dinosaurs that came from my imagination, maybe.
