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 …

Succulents and cactus

What can’t you live without?

My sketchbook is my most loyal companion that has stuck by me through thick and thin. It’s brought me so much joy and it’s carried me through so many sad days.

My Vegan diet

My Vegan diet during the pandemic

My Vegan diet. I’ve been pretty much vegetarian most of my adult life and when the pandemic hit last year I decided to remove dairy and try to go plant based as much as I could. It was the only thing I had control of with so many uncertainties outside and the world in shambles.
I’m probably 90% plant based now. The only exception is my occasional croissant. It’s easy with lockdown cos I don’t buy any dairy and I only eat what I cook. I think it will be harder out of lockdown. If I see cheese and eggs or a cake in front of me I will most likely eat it but for now out of sight out of mind.

Delta plus covid-19 variant

Delta plus covid-19 variant

And we thought things couldn’t get worse. Enter Delta plus covid-19 variant. This superspreader variant is 50 percent more transmissible than the original viral strain 
We’ve been in lockdown for over 2 months now and yet the covid cases continue to rise and our hospitals are overflowing with patients fighting for their lives.
It’s getting hard to see an end to this nightmare… Hopefully things will get better when the country is fully vaccinated in a few more months… 🙏

Reading the news has it’s good days sometimes. Today in the news in Malaysia, I discovered a new insect called a Spanish fly. It is an emerald green beetle and is the source of a toxic blistering agent once use as an aphrodisiac. Source Wikipedia.

Troll doll

Troll doll

Sketch of a Troll doll. Troll dolls are cute but cyber trolls are not. With the theme of covid and lockdown, we’ve seen the emergence of cyber bullying and pent up anger everywhere and that really saddens me.

Latex gloves

Latex Gloves

I bought these latex gloves last year at the start of the pandemic when all hell broke lose and I was paranoid to the max. Admittedly I have only used them once at the supermarket and decided it was just too silly and inconvenient when I could just spray sanitizer on everything I touched instead. No, I’m not crazy paranoid. 🙊
