Feeding Your Soul; Apple #3

2.5" x 3.5", ink & watercolor crayon on ATC/ACEO

In Apple Art  #3, the heavy influence of Henson & Sesame Street in my work is obvious.
Seriously though, Slimey was my favorite. This doodle is fun and whimsical, but it definitely has personal a story behind it.
 Being a good neighbor isn't always easy. They say good fences make good neighbors, and crossing the fence to help a neighbor in need isn't always easy. It can be awkward when that neighbor directly asks for some of your apple. If I think my apple is just big enough for me and mine, I'm much less likely to offer it up to the hungry. However, as much as I think it is mine, I didn't grow this apple. It was graciously given to me and it is delicious. It might leave less for my belly, but sharing this fruit will spread its seeds out farther, letting kindness, hope, and generosity take root in new places and hearts. This feeds my soul. Today I ask you to see the fruit you have been given, and to assess just how well fed you are and how you can nourish others.
