Don't knock sketching

A very busy day today, and hardly any time for art --
except I took a sketchbook with me, and I try to draw
in my three page journal every morning.

This morning in a phone conversation with a friend about
how she and her husband met, she was talking about being at
an artist's party, and seeing her future husband across
the room.  He had just returned from England, where
he'd been attending a talk about Bertrand Russell.  And
she'd just returned from England where she'd been in
a travelling acting troupe.

So...they started talking about Bertrand Russell, and 
that was the start of their very happy marriage, and love
story.  While she told me about it, I looked up
Bertrand Russell on Wikipedia, and drew this fast
sketch in my journal of Bertrand at 4. I hope I do
a bit more work on it.

Have a loving your life day.
