    “I love how my real feels.” Oh my goodness. I love this, so simple & profound and deeply beautiful.

    Your beautiful drawing reminds me of one of my earliest memories:
    It is of a visit to an aunt during which she sent me into her beautiful garden and gave me some tiny vessels and vases made from unglazed clay to play with. I was so small that I could feel the flowers over my head! I remember that sitting in the sunshine among those flowers I felt very real that day and completely happy!
    Later in life that feeling got sometimes lost and had to be searched for again! Thank you for the lovely reminder Rachel!
