Aahh, the mystery of Life. Fascinating, isn’t it. This doodle has something extra. Prepared in Fantasia Painter, I was just proceeding along quietly, but the brush I was using was not doing what I expected. Yet, I quite liked the textural effect and decided to keep it for use as a background. So, here you see it. The original colour scheme is of the border. You will see a few posts soon that use it. Continually learning about this app.

Also, my fascination with Instagram has ended. Not with the wonderful artists I was following and whose work inspired me so much. Thank you! 😍 No. It eats up your data allowance, shockingly so, apart from it being highly addictive. I don’t need that. And I was becoming tired of all the philosophizing and quoting of so-called famous quotes. If I wanted that, I’ll go to school.

Going onto IG was an attempt to respond in a creative manner (my usual mode) to gross negativities in my life that were eroding the sensitivities and objectiveness that allow me to survive as an individual. I am surrounded. Death, in its many forms, is not far away. But, I am glad my wits have not failed me, yet. And I am very grateful to have those wits to help me. Life has taught me that nothing else will.
