Illustration Friday: Surrender


So Georgia broke her toe. She gets to wear a splint and a bootie to keep her foot dry in this awful weather. The word surrender conjures up many ideas, but the one I have had on my mind these past few weeks is the idea of surrendering to the things we cannot control such as my dogs broken toe and the huge bill that came with it. Life does not typically follow the course I would prefer to take and I find myself more often than not surrendering to plans unforeseen.

Drawing is of Georgia wearing her splint and bootie. Done using only the multi-touch track pad on my MacBook pro...talk about difficult! Below is the video I was taking of Georiga running in the backyard. I unintentionally caught her injury on this video...
