Rainy day doodle

Are my roots showing?

Sometimes, all I can think about is moving......moving someplace where the winters are mild yet summers aren't scorching either. But I have roots here, 50 years worth of wonderful family, friends and memories. I know I will not leave unless something happened that forced me to I suppose. And deep down, I'm more than 'ok' with that♥

even the style of your picture is changing day by day, but no one can't deny of that beautiful eyes, still the same from the beginning until this time.

best regards,

Cool doodle! I love her eyes!! Is it on water colour paper?? If so will you paint it? It'd be interesting to see it in colour! I know what you mean about roots! My roots are firmly in Australia now, something I never thought would happen when I moved here. But I really do love where I live, I think we all feel itchy feet sometimes but that's what holidays are for...perhaps it's time you had a holida??? ;0)

As an uprooted person I agree that leaving "home" is hard.

I love the sketch!

Hi Darla, sounds like you could do with winning the lottery and having a summer home. This way your roots stay but you can go somewhere sunny when for a few months.
Your friends and family are so important to you. If you win enough you can take them with you!
Oh to dream hey!
Your in a sunny place umongst your most precious!
I think this sometimes, about moving but don't want to move away from my mum. She is so very dear to me. I moved away when i was yound for nine years and she missed me so much! I don't think I could do this again.
Glad you create the summer!

Darla I am loving your new women.

After 50 maybe you are seeing a different style of being.

A lovely sketch Darla. I sometimes feel the same. I would love to move away, but I would miss my family too much.
