free flying spirit

free flying spirit / artsyville

This doodle describes the essence and provenance of a little flying spirit that I love, one who was sent to us from some other universe, one who is brilliant beyond her years in some ways and absolutely befuddled by the workings of this world in others, one who is quickly getting too old for me to write about in my public postings. And that is hard not to do, because she and her otherworldliness are what fuel so much of my thoughts and writing. So about this piece I will simply say: dreamers have roots, too. Just not where most people would expect to find them.

{now in the shop: 5x7 here; 8x10 here.}

Also, it's cool that you have 5x7s in your etsy store. I'm planning on moving very very small very soon and that's as big as I'd go.

So very cool
