I'm sitting and working in my birdsnest..My imagination is working overtime..and in my mind I fly to wonderful places..This reminded me...I need to share this with you...its AMAZING..Henry Cole Illustration
When I saw this I didn't draw mice for a long time...So..after a few days Miss Moussie came asking..-Why did you stop drawing me..? Well....I answered..I don't think I;m good enough..and then stared at the ceiling...-What's up there..twittered Miss Moussie...-O nothing..I sighed..just my thoughts whirling through the room..They are a bit confused..not knowing wich direction to choose...To draw or not to draw..
-Then let me help you ..squeaked Miss Moussie..I'm very good in times of distres..I'll get those silly thoughts in order..What ever could they be thinking...not drawing mice..Phff..He you guys upthere..Its ME..MISS MOUSSIE..and I want to be drawn....Life on the Hilltop is to beautiful to be missed...When I'm old I want to look back and see all my friends in a beautiful picture book..
-And then I understood...my thoughts stopped being fuzzy..because that's what they wanted too...a picture book..filled with memories..
-Are they oke ..twittered Miss Moussie..now staring curiously into my eyes..Yes..you are I can tell..Well then..carry on dear....Tea will be ready in a minute...In the garden under the Lilac bush..
