Doing What You Love

“let the beauty of what you love be what you do.”  ~ Rumi

I came across these sketches the other night .. a couple of the original pencil drawings for A Book of Fairies; and was reminded how much I enjoyed creating that book.

They also reminded me that loving what you do can translate into something that’s not only real and viable~ but with enough good spirit (backed by solid effort … and maybe a muse or two), it can also touch others in ways you hadn’t imagined.

How do you measure that? It comes unexpected, in the eyes of a delighted child, eager to share a story about the mermaid they saw in their grandfather’s creek, or the child who sends you a hand-drawn thank you with fairy crowns and sparkles, or the teen who wants to be an author or an illustrator too.

And all of that makes all the years of well-loved pencil scribbling all the more meaningful. It makes doing what you love make sense.

    Is that the tooth fairy’s evil twin? Stealing chocolate and hiding it under children’s pillows?

    Hope your love and enthusiasm for what you do never fades… 🙂

      I believe it’s stealing to enjoy for themselves. : ) And thank you, I can’t imagine it fading!

    So that’s how all those chocolate chips disappeared over the years! 😀
