[ID: Two panel drawing done in traditional media. First panel shows a close view of a migrating stork, it’s looking sideways at a single autumnal leaf that’s spinning in the wind. In the next panel, two storks are flying away into the distance as the leaf keeps being swept up towards the front view. Background shows a greyish blue sky and gathering clouds.]
[ID: Watercolour illustration of a dark skinned girl with dark curly hair and a red fox. The girl is wearing casual clothes, and she’s standing and looking down at the fox with a tired expression. The fox is wearing a crocodile skull like a mask and approaching the girl with one of its front paws slightly lifted from the ground in a curious yet hesitant manner. They’re in a natural environment that’s covered in grass and blueberry bushes and there’s a couple of yellow butterflies flying in the background.]
Could I just say something real quick?
It’s all coming. Whatever you’re starving for, whatever that ache is that stings your bones, it’s coming. The love, the happiness, the adventures, and the creativity that you are seeking, it is all coming for you. Here’s the thing, don’t let your right now get away. The things you find mundane, keep them. Store them in the pocket of your favorite coat like found pennies. They aren’t futile. Do not let them cause you to feel empty and hollow. They are going to be worthwhile. Keep the hunger for what is coming, but please, keep a tight grip on these little ordinary moments that are happening right now, because they – these tiny pieces of this ordinary affair you find yourself in – are the foundation to your extraordinary. And I promise you, if you begin to recognize your right now, you’ll see your extraordinary coming.
