Precious sunlight-Rea on her way out.
The drawing today is about connections and life lines. In the science section of the New York Times today, there are two articles side by side ,pD1. One about genes, 'Finding genes in odd places' and how we basically share genes or clusters of genes, with all sort of creatures, from plants to jellyfish , to bats, to whales and so forth. Don't you love this? The interconnectedness, the way we truly all belong to connected 'life lines'.
The second article ,'17 Years later...',is about cancer survivors-patients connecting and sharing stories over the web, strengthening, encouraging and just 'witnessing' each other-a different set of life-lines but similar in the sense that the stories shared can become the cornerstones of somebody else's healing and survival.
I want to celebrate this!
I also want to cheer for a friend from Montreal who has just made a beautiful artzine- You can find it in her etsy store.
And last but not least, did you see the interview with artist Brandi Strickland in Belinda's blog?
