Selina is a school child in Kenya whom I started sponsoring this year. She’s thirteen, likes to play soccer and her favorite color is pink. Imagining the discrepancy between both our realities makes my head spin. I am glad that by sponsoring her school fees and supplies I can reach out. It’s her birthday next month and I made this drawing for her.

I have this amazing friend who made me this wonderful calendar for the pre-Christmas days:
Here in Germany we call them “Adventskalender”, Advent being the 24 days before Christmas.
It’s a collection of her favorite quotes and each day I am allowed to draw one. And I have decided to turn this into an Adventskalender for her (and you) as well!
So each day I will be posting the quote of the day and the picture/story/comic that came into my mind after reading it.
Here’s yesterday’s quote and drawing (“Without Energy there’s no Synergy” – Willy Meurer)
You think I’m arrogant,
but my shrugging ist just to mask
my not knowing
what to say.
You think my lack of questions
is a sign of disinterest
but what’s lacking
is only the courage to ask.
Only because I don’t join
your chit chat
doesnt’ mean I don’t feel comfortable
in your company.
Walking besides you
means I’m trusting you
with what’s growing in it.
