I saved this exercise for a special day, one that I knew was coming. If youâ€™ve been following ODAD for a length of time, youâ€™d know September 11th is an intimate day of reflection for me, and my family. After a tender weekend filled with memorial services thereâ€™s nothing Iâ€™d rather be doing today than â€œrelax, daydream and draw the cloudsâ€.
Iâ€™m a big believer that life is not over once our time here has passed and it brings me comfort to think maybe (just maybe) heâ€™s only just a breeze away â€¦ beyond the clouds.
