Moana Art

 By my oldest kid (will be 7 later this year) & me. Using pencil, marker & crayon. Sailing boats drawn in white paper then cut and pasted into blue paper. My kid is excited on  Moana things: the sailing boats, scenery, Mau I’m dancing, Heihei, Gramma’s stories, and how Gramma then become manta Ray spirit. 

My kid drew the composition by pencil: sailing boats, objects on sailing screen, mountains & tree on the right. I colored, drew mountains on the left, sun in the boats screen & waves, added patterns, sky background. My youngest kid drew the sun with crayon. And (oh, no… )  my youngest kid just now adds that blue streak on the sky.

Look at the sea, sail to the sea, jump into the sea – –  sea will quickly explore all emotions human has: from joyful to frightful, boring to bonding, wondering to wandering, from curiosities to our capability to handle adversities.

Ode to My Earl

I say ‘If you are to come, just come closer & linger me, I can’t resist seeing you just with my eyes range from far’; coz he is just the fullest fun & warmth. He sways me always with his fresh fancy fragrance.

A sip of Earl Grey will make all the way.

His smell always awakens my smile. He is my Earl, Earl Grey.

My cup of tea & I.
Me time with my Earl, Earl Grey.

Drink your tea slowly & reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves — slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future. Live the actual moment.  ~Thich Nhat Hanh (from
