M.V.I.C.M.W.

Ballpoint Pen on Moleskine Ruled Notebook

I wanted to post my Illustration Friday entry for "Hide" but I have not figured out how to post a link. So I am skipping it this Friday. If Illustration Friday was a course, I enrolled in it last fall and have yet to attend a session...

M.V.I.C.M.W.


She loves to straddle her feet. She likes laying on the floor and propping her legs and feet against the wall or on the backrest of sofas and love seats while she lounges. Something she frequently did when she was a little girl.

She lives among the pages of appointments, notes, numbers and recipes picked up from dinners and parties. Her full name is Maria Victoria Isabella Christina M. Wellesley.

After she graduated from college she went to San Jose for a mandatory community service internship. She went home in spring the following year. She looked forward to spending time with her best friend who was pregnant with her first child. That summer her best friend died.

"In the garden of life the roses wither and their petals fall off and then only the thorns remain."

Love your newness! This is an intriguing young lady and I will stay tuned to her adventures. If you want me to teach you how to post on IF tell me when you can call me and I will answer my phone. (I'm terrible about picking up my phone)! Then I will walk you through step by step to help you! Blogging is awesome yet draining. I post on IF once a week and try to post a non IF post every other week that way I don't feel it takes away from my responsibilities. I'm right there with you on this topic as I think of things to write about but I have so many life commitments I can't justify blogging all the time.Love your new outlook!

Hi Val,

Thanks so much for your offer. I would love for you to walk me through IF linkage. I will let you know when I am ready. Thanks again.

I hope my heroine keeps you entertained. She's a bore sometimes.

I agree with you on the blogging. I just wish now I saved my tribute to my MIL before I deleted and reclaimed the URL. Oh well, some solutions have unexpected finality in them.

losing a best friend is sad, like losing a part of you, a part of your person... i lost one to cancer.

on to more positive things, the "illustration" (now i know it's not just a sketch) is WOW - wonderful, oh-some work!!! i love, love it.
