or: “Trail”

Well, I just had to deviate from my one-word blog titles. Last week, my son (age 3) drew an image on paper with pencil. I asked him what it was and he said, “It’s God on a boat…with a balloon.” I fell in love with this idea and it became my submission for Illustration Friday also (the theme this week is “trail”)

The concept of God on a journey hit me as so meloncholy. God alone in his boat, searching for his own path, holding something so child-like it strikes me scared and is comforting at the same time that he doesn’t have all the answers.

I don’t know, but I think that sometimes 3-yr-olds just understand more than we do, or at least give them credit for.
