Thoughts while drifting on the water

I bet you thought I'd be thinking deep, thoughtful things - about love and friendship and the state of the world.


When I'm out on the kayak, drifting along, or even paddling hard, I wonder about what lives under the water and are there "people" that live in the water and watch me as I paddle by.  I look closely to see if I can find them, but haven't seen them since dreaming about them when I was about 5 years old.

These are my rough sketches of the Water Lily Girls - I started working on them years ago, and then dropped them in favor of Miss Em comics. But they keep popping up again, guess I'd better listen to their stories.

Fun and silly stuff.

Mim mim mim, the things that do on behind that lovely head. I adore the water lily girls, the girl riding the turtle the tadpoles swimming through the door, all these. so original, inventive and inspiring.

I am right there with you Mim! My mind always drifts to these *otherworldly* topics....especially when I am around water - be it a pond, lake or ocean!

Your Water Lily Girls remind me of the *Rhinemaidens*...a-ha-ha!
Love those Tadpoles swimming through the classroom door...

You have created a magical (yet comical) watery world! who day Ms. Em (as a super-heroine) might even visit!

I love your silly thoughts! I dream of little fairies in the woods, sitting on mushrooms, fighting with spiders, using big leaves for imagination is a wonderful thing to have.
