Love Like It Matters.

7:40 AM

I spent a lot of my weekend (more than I'd like to admit) working on this drawing. 
But I love it, so I feel like it was worth it. Sitting with a big piece of paper drawing things in pen is my favorite thing to do, so hopefully that can somewhat justify the hours that were devoted to one simple little sketch. Except it's not that simple, and that's part of what I like about it. It's almost like Where's Waldo a little bit, or "I Spy," since there are so many little items hidden around within it. Can you spot the dandelions? Or the basket of apples? Or the heart? I think the more important question is - why did I draw a bunch of random stuff around these words? (And what exactly does this phrase mean, anyway?) I thought of this phrase a few weeks ago (although I'm sure I'm not the first) and I just like the idea of there being an urgency in loving each other. The love we have in our lives matters, so why not treat it like it's really important? By that I mean, I want to be the friend that calls. I want to be the daughter that visits often. I want to be known as somebody who tries to love others well (I need to work on this one.) Because I do think it matters. Love matters. And my thinking behind the random clutter around the words in the drawing is just to represent the stuff (the clutter, I guess) that gets in the way. I'm hoping to work on it a little more, maybe add some color, and hopefully I'll have a finished product later this week.
