Many years ago before my daughter was even born I started writing a children's book. After she was born the book became about her and changed a bit through each stage of her early years. 2 summers ago I finally finished writting it, but still had the task of illustrating. I'm not an illustrator never was. My background is in photography and art education, most of my artwork is in collage or mixed media form, but Im determined to do it myself. It has been a very frustrating road. I took long break because of my frustration, but think I'm finally back and determined to get it done. I realize the drawings will not be as detailed as some of the more established illustrators out there, but I'm willing and determined to finish it. #illustration#bookillustration#childrensillustrations#childrensbooks#startingoff#finishmydream#mybucketlist#havetogetitdone#lovebooks#lovemydaughter#artist preliminarydrawing
I'm having a concert to celebrate the life of my late fiance, who passed away 25 years ago. His name was David Rose. He passed away from complications of #meningitis . He was an amazing electric #violinist , #songwriter , #musician , and an even more amazing human being! If anyone would like to donate or would like to come, see link below.
Good morning Israel. My view of The Sea of Galilee from my room. So beautiful. Ready to head to Jerusalem. So excited. #mybucketlist . #Sothankful

AFRICA SMILED, a poem by Bridget Dore
Africa smiled a little when you left.
“We know you,” Africa said,
“We have seen and watched you,
We can learn to live without you,
But We know We needn’t Yet.” And Africa smiled a little when you left.
“You cannot Leave Africa,” Africa said.
“It is always with you,
There inside your head.
Our rivers run In currents In the swirl
Of your thumbprints;
Counting out your pulse,
The silhouette of your soul.” So Africa smiled a little when you left.
“We are in you,” Africa said.
“You have not left us, Yet.”
Another incredible day...Spent time on the Sea of Galilee where we went for a boat ride..then sat on the hillside where Jesus spoke about of the Beatitudes. Later we went to be baptized in the Jordan River...We visited so many biblical/historical sites today. I am in awe. #mybucketlist
I want to share something kind of personal with you!
This is my fridge (but not much longer). On it my boyfriend and I have a scratch map that we're slowly uncovering (I could scratch off Russia and Canada, but this is only for places we've both been to).
And below is a bucket list! I have always liked bucket lists, I know some people find them silly and I don't expect to die yet (as I'm only young), but I like to have a visual overview of goals and aspirations, just to remind myself to add them to my plan when I can - otherwise I might lose myself in my day-to-day life and wake up one day to realise I hardly did any of these things...it's also nice when I'm having a bad day to remind myself how much there is to life and how lucky I am to have a chance to do these things 💙 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is primarily a travel-bucket list for us as a couple, and hopefully we get to tick some things off that list in the coming year...
