Mantra turned doodle turned back into mantra

I did this little sketch in the airport on my way to Asheville over Thanksgiving. The kid sitting next to me (I think his name was Elijah) said that he could “never draw like that.” He told me he was 12. I asked him if his five-year-old self would have believed he could draw like he is now, seven years later. He said, “Probably not.” I suggested that since I am twice his age — a lifetime ahead of him — I just may have more practice. He said he is going to start drawing again.

I wonder how many times I too have assumed checkmate. All for no reason!

Let us take baby steps, receive grace and expect victory.
