Selina

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.

Adventskalender

I have this amazing friend who made me this wonderful calendar for the pre-Christmas days:

Adventskalender
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)

Advent_Day_4And this is today’s quote:

Tag_5The translation would be:
“Anger isn’t negative. The purpose of anger is to transform negative energy into positive energy.” Andrea Kaltofen
Let’s see what I will make out of that one!

oh, to be like the tress, shedding their leaves

each one a little love letter, trusting that spring will come.

of the shy

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
in silence,
means I’m trusting you
with what’s growing in it.
