Sending blessings your way

Illustration by Lileen.com ©2021

Safe travels, healthy days and nights, brighter futures - these are my hopes

No, I’m no priestess, but heck - anyone can offer blessings. Ask the heavens and the gods to guide and protect the folks you know. Oversee the people you connect with each day. Just as a general courtesy.

As I draw each letter, I think about the meaning each curve represents. Positivity, lilting upward, seeking to tell you about some joy that is out there for you.

Sworls that indicate energy.

Bird that indicates a holy messenger - take your pick.

Stars that wave from the heavens.

Earth & Sky that are your stage to dance on.

Colors that soothe and harmonize your thoughts. Mine too.

I drew this on my ferry ride from Port Jefferson, NY to Bridgeport, CT. The trip across the Long Island Sound is a time of meditation for me. I can have music or audio book on at the same time I am drawing. It a fugue of thoughts, influences and intentions.

My intentions tonight are to wish you and yours the happiness you deserve.

Hope our mutual heavens conspire to grant this wish.

My PitchWars tweet on 12/2/2021:

Rivers the rooster does NOT want to fight. They think fighting is dumb. Chickens can have dreams! Their dream... Just walk around and look jerky? No. Yell at the sun every morning? No. River's dream... be top corn chef. 12 chickens show off their real talents.
