A little understanding

I try to go for a walk every morning to clear my head and prepare myself for a creative day. (My three-part plan, which is beautiful when it actually happens, is journaling first thing in the morning, a walk before work, and painting at night.)

Yesterday during my morning walk, a thought was nagging at the back of my brain; that sometimes friends, no matter how well-meaning, disappoint you. I was feeling annoyed and let down, when this little bottlecap caught my eye. As I leaned down to pick it up, I realized that I've let down friends myself; and if I have hope they can forgive me, I need to do the same for them.

I kept the bottlecap to remind me...

A little understanding.

A little forgiveness.

note: I've started contributing to The Drawing Club, a super-inspiring collaborative site brought to you by the wonderful Michael Nobbs. Dive in and read lots of good stuff! New posts from me every Tuesday.
