If you’re tired, take a rest before you fly

Dragonfly drawing

If you’re tired, take a rest before you fly.

I’m taking some wisdom from the Dragonfly today. It’s OK to take some down time. Even the Dragonfly doesn’t fly all day long. With my hand recovering, I can’t do things at full capacity. At week 5, I’m recovering nicely but there are still limitations to what I can do. Patience is a big lesson learnt, and not feeling guilty about culling certain activities like a full workout and lifting heavy objects. I’m still continuing to draw with my healing hand and I’m really enjoying drawing with my non dominant hand. It’s good practice to look at things from a different perspective. It’s also made me wonder whether my art is determined by which hand I draw with. The answer is clearly no, as its still drawn by me. Something to ponder over …

And just like that…

Nobody talks anymore.

On another note, thank you everyone who have been asking about my hand. It is healing since I fell 5 weeks ago. And no, I did not break my drawing hand, but the last 3 sketches of the new year are drawn with my healing hand as part of my rehab. I need to exercise my hand and get it strong again. πŸ™

I found this is in my family home whilst going through some old things to clear. Haven’t seen one of these in a while.

Merry Christmas to all of you

Merry Christmas

This year’s Christmas message is : YOU ARE NEVER ALONE.
My dear friend @pswendy is raising funds for The house of hope, an NGO in Penang that gives help and a sense of community to the hardcore poor. It’s a good reminder that it’s important to look out for one another especially people within your own community. If you can’t donate money, donate your time and effort or just make sure people you know are OK.
What are you waiting for?
