The news scares me…

…art connects me to hope

I came across this pencil drawing titled “the news scares me” that I did several years ago. (Seems it’s not a new trend, the news, being scary…) This is a reminder to anyone who’s feeling overwhelmed by the state of things not to despair, but to keep doing whatever you can do to make the world a better place, in whatever ways are within your means. Small actions, large actions — just take action. Do what you can do. Meet the world with love. And laughter. And anger. And hope.

Do something to find and spread the light inside you.
