On the Run

Whenever I see a coyote in my neighborhood, I get concerned about them. So many people use their “fear” of them as an excuse to shoot them.

And I’ve been asked from friends if I am “OK” and if anyone is harassing me or threatening me (because I am Asian).

Suddenly, I identified with the coyote…just living life in the moment. Hyper-aware. Ready to fight and defend myself, but feeling fine and going about my business.

What’s the Word for Eager and Angst?

I love Jon Stich’s teaching style and his art so I am super excited to start the exercises in this book. This, despite the fact that he’s big on details (not my forte), mixing colors (my artistic Achilles Heel) and drawing items that take more than an hour (I like quick exercises)! Here’s to learning, getting dissatisfied and frustrated, and persevering.
