A reminder that despite pain and suffering there is a will to survive.
Sketch of the day no 1218 in my moleskine sketchbook: a Stray dog came to my gate on my birthday and called out to me for help. I was so distraught and heartbroken to see him so skinny and he had a twitchy shoulder. I went back to give him some food and water. After he finished eating, he left, never to be seen again.
I called my best friend who is an expert on strays and she said this is my birthday blessing.
I’m not sure what lesson I am to learn here but I could not take the dog in.
