|SHE WILL RISE AGAIN|
I find myself sketching Japanese girls in my art journal these days.
I still can't wrap my head around the suffering and the devastation.
I'm not sure I want to.
My mind can't handle it but my heart weeps for the Japanese people and all those affected.
I've been practicing Japanese symbols and I've written several
Japanese proverbs in my art journal.
I just want to honor their courage and struggle in some small way.
Maybe you'll enjoy bits of their quotes and wisdom as I do.
"Tigers die and leave their skins, people die and leave their names."
" If you are understanding everything, you must be misinformed."
"The reverse side also has a reverse side."
"If you believe everything you read, better not read."
"Vision without action is a day-dream. Action without vision is a nightmare."
"First a man takes a drink, then the drink takes a drink,
then the drink takes the man."
"When the character of man is not clear to you,
look at his friends."
"Even a sheet of paper has two side."
"Fast ripe, fast rotten".
"Forgiving the unrepentant is like trying to
draw on water."
"Money grows on the tree of persistence."
"The nail that sticks up is hammered down."
Which one resonates with you? Do you have any others
you could add?
