"Inspire Me Thursday": Seven


I keep hearing that a day as auspicious as 7/7/07 only comes once each century and it appears that there were a record number of weddings and trips to the casinos yesterday. For me, the luckiest thing about July 7, 2007 was that millions of people tuned into a Live Earth.

Though our prompt for the week, "seven," calls to mind images of luck and well-being, I realized that the direction of our lives relies more heavily on the choices we make, rather than simply the luck of the draw. These musings led me to this sketch... a crossroads at which I hope we all take the ramp which will lead us to where we most want to go.

Happy trails!

I love this piece! You are so innovative in your interpretations of themes. Those seriously could be used in one of those affirmation/motivational type books. You are so talented!

great work! this is so fun!

i'm getting married this year, but on 10/13/07. i know, the "unlucky" 13! :-) well, it's on a saturday instead of a friday. awhile back i read about the reasons why 13 is supposedly unlucky is actually quite interesting. it has to do with the feminine cycle, the cycles of the moon, which was thought to be unlucky to a bunch of old men. :-)

This is a great approach to the theme, one that makes you think. I agree with you, most of the times, it is up to us to think and choose.
