1 – Greet pigeons with benevolence. They just might do the wibblywobbly dance for you.
2 – Learn a silly word a day, like; Hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia – Fear of the number 666.
3 – Now, banish that word from your mind! There really isn’t any sense for such a silly word.
4 – Step in wet and soggy puddles as often as you can. Ideally, without the aid of goulashes!
5 – Take long bike rides, preferably, up hill. This gives one a great sense of accomplishment.
6 – Learn a fine art, like; MOOING or HOOTING! This is very good to woo the woe-be-me’s away, especially, on drizzly days.
7 – Join the very Secret and Hushhush Society of Foliaphiles!
8 – Acknowledge your Shadow more…meaning, don’t just talk to him on Sunny days.
9 – Practice your technique of Mind Gliding from a cozy comfy chair, everyday, or even twice a day, if you are so inclined. It really is a wonderous way of traveling.
10 – Finally, you must practice your leaping and bounding a top your bed before wishing all the stars in the sky a very, bonne nuit!
Just a quick character study for The Curious Tales of Thimble Tarn in graphite and color pencil by Anastasia Traina ~ 2016 ~
But I am just too excited to wait and share “may we always sit in awe of others’ differings”. Watching this idea come to life after discovering and being inspired by the tiny family of mice that moved into our empty beehive in October is simply magical. I am so thrilled to report that the lilliputian family is still well and thriving all nestled in their bed of twigs and leaves with a very healthy stash of acorns in their bee-utiful new home!
