New Drawing, Old Words

I will not

cling to the rocks

and watch it all go by.

Step off!

Dive. Jump. Leap.

Hold your breath

and Breathe!

I am breathing.

Artwork - 2.5 x 3.5 inches

Words - Found in a journal of mine. Entry: May, 2008.


  1. I love this drawing! Can I print it out and color it, or would that be disrespectful?

  2. The fact you were thoughtful enough to ask is all that is needed. Thank you! Have fun coloring! That is my favorite thing to do! At an art show long ago, I made a coloring book of about 6 drawings. (I think I liked it more than most people.) Enjoy!!

  3. Thanks! I love coloring, too, especially with crayons.

    Somehow all of our kids' Christmas books have disappeared in our various moves, so I printed a couple of mini-books online the other day and colored them for my two-year-old. I think I got more out of it than she has.

  4. Crayons! (That is a smell I have forgotten, too.) A box of crayons and a coloring book and I am in heaven. When my daughter was little, I would be the one saying, "Come on...let's just color one more...please."

  5. jenny stevning i love this drawing and the brave words hovering by its side. and i love the exchange between the pollinatrix and you. when i walk into my classroom it is filled with the scent of wax crayons, pencil shavings, socks, old shoes, wax, the fishtank - well it's a real potpourri. i love walking into primary classrooms especially for the smell of wax crayons. steven

  6. Hi Jenny,

    I love your drawing...very thought provoking and your words are delicious.

    Thank you for stopping by my blog. I'm keeping tabs on you...meaning I'm following.

    I hope to see you at the respite again soon.

    much love

  7. Thank you, Steven! Thank you, Stacey!
