Midsummer and Dragonflies Fairy in Copics - Norma Burnell Digi

👉 My favorite age is now.

I reach for this lovely Norma Burnell fairy image time and again to color for a card image because I have such a fascination with dragonflies. I love them not only for their grace and beauty, but also for their symbolism. As I was creating this card for my dear friend who is courageously battling a devastating illness, I remembered an uplifting tale of awakening and rebirth I had read several years ago.  I was surprised and excited to find it again on Pinterest.

This story was read at the funeral of a friend by her 12 year old daughter.
What a soothing reminder of courage, hope and faith.  Perspective is everything!

Thanks for visiting.
Go forth and create something fabulous.
