This week's I.F. quote:
"To keep a lamp burning we have to keep putting oil in it."
- Mother Teresa
With Mother Teresa's image in the back of our minds, the quote has a positive note to it. All weekend long I mulled it over - just how many things do we keep burning that aren't so positive? And as I sat down to draw, I thought: it is we ourselves who are the fuel for the passions which fire us.
It is as well to give thought to where we choose to put our energies for there will come a day when these passions will have consumed us.
...and for something simpler, a quiet hour.
