Here's one I did almost a year ago, and I even wrote a short story behind the picture, to give it a little more depth and feeling. :) It took me a long time, not because it was difficult to draw necessarily, but because it was one of those drawings I just drew at my own leisure... I didn't rush it at all and it's one of my best pictures. :)
Appreciating life is a lot easier when you've given up everything but the clothes on your back and you're on a train to nowhere. Somehow, you realize that you've never had it all before. Once you take a look at all the untouched beauty, you realize that everyday luxuries aren't comparable to experiencing life first-hand. When you have nothing to worry about, and all the time in the world, you can appreciate things more greatly than before.
Until this idea sparked in my mind, I had thought I had it all. But, as this mission grew, I started to realize how much more I could gain through giving up most of all that I own. I couldn't be happier with the decision I've made.
Of course I'll go back home. Maybe. But until then, I'll appreciate what God has given us, and have it all. Because, once I go back home, I'll be pulled to a lifestyle where I have to sleep at a certain time, work at a certain time, eat at a certain time, and see only certain things at certain times of the day. I won't be able to move freely, wherever and whenever I like. I'll have to measure what I do, for it all has a cost in that lifestyle.
So, until the day comes where I'll need to return home, I'll fall asleep to traintrack lullabies and wake up to sunrises that could change the world..
