In a conversation, my friend Andrea told me how happy she was with the direction her life had been going. She said, “Things are going so good, I don’t want to let go of the glow.”
Don’t let go of the glow. I liked that. It’s important to guard our thoughts against the negativity that can so easily creep in. I’ve learned that whatever I illustrate sticks with me so I promptly rustled up a couple of models (Andrea’s son Adrian being one of them) and got this drawing down on paper. The next week when Adrian’s mom mentioned she was intent on “keeping the glow going,” I thought, “oh no, here we go again.”
What about you? How do you keep the glow going?
