Friday Affirmations — Be

Be a gentle warrior for your own heart…

Drawing sprites and warriors, facets of self that need to remind me to see layers in different ways.  I wish I had a pale peach colored wing and a strong cloak of wool and fleece… Anntenae with flower tips for hair.  She is gentle and strong, fierce and lovely all at the same time.  What’s not for me to love in her.
