here's one of my favorite artists:

I have admired elsie flannigan's work for quite some time, and am soooo honored to be featured in her always wonderful "10 things I love sunday" for this week (kiddo diy project)...made my day!!

Wonderful words by Albert it.

Strange is our situation here upon earth. Each of us comes for a short visit, not knowing why, yet sometimes seeming to a divine purpose. From the standpoint of daily life, however, there is one thing we do know: That we are here for the sake of others…for the countless unknown souls with whose fate we are connected by a bond of sympathy. Many times a day, I realize how much my outer and inner life is built upon the labors of people, both living and dead, and how earnestly I must exert myself in order to give in return as much as I have received.

seen here, and here

and I absolutely adore this illustration by melanie richards

it makes me smile-- you can also see more of her work here
