I saw this post on A Wing and A Way and learned that April 8 is a very special holiday called Draw a Bird Day. A bunch of us took part today, creating artwork in various media in which birds played starring roles. It was fun!
The best part is some of us picked up a pencil or a brush for the first time in awhile (or ever!), and found the joy in creating art. It’s a magical thing, truly.
What do you all think about doing this every month, on the eighth of the month? Birds are such powerful symbols of freedom and peace, and even patriotism. What better way for us all to take flight, to shake off those defeating beliefs and doubts that say we must have some kind of mythical gift to be able to put pencil to paper? Let’s fly, people!
I’m in! Anyone else? Next Draw a Bird Day…..Friday, May 8th?
