Daily paint-a-thon continues with a return to pen and ink. There was nothing abstract about my feelings of pure panic today, so I returned to the human face and my beloved watercolors.
So why was I in a panic? My world-traveling son posted a video from Costa Rica. A video of a 500 ft bungee jump (his, of course) complete with helmet camera. Now there is nearly nothing worse than to listen to your child scream as they plummet to their...bounce back up. Holy crap in a basket.
Perhaps this is part of growing up (me, not him) and letting your children loose in the world, free to face daily perils of their own choosing. I, for one, will not jump out of a perfectly good airplane.
