The pig that wanted to sway like the daisies.

Here’s a little fable and illustration I created for children :).

The pig that wanted to sway like the daisies by Bridget Cameron

A pig one day, came across a field of daisies that were waving in the wind. He enjoyed watching the way they swayed back and forth, back and forth and hoped that he could too, sway gently like them in the breeze.
He stood in the middle of the field and asked the wind to blow stronger for him, so that he may sway like the daisies. The wind heard his plea, and began to blow with gentle wisps. The pig could feel the wind against his body, but alas nothing happened.
He then, asked the wind to blow stronger. The wind blew with more might, and the pig felt the gusts of wind brushing against his body, yet found that he still stood still. Then, with his loudest voice he asked, “Please wind, blow with all your might!”
The wind took a deep breath and blew out an enormous tornado. The pig felt the wind come, and began to move at last, and move he did, for he was caught up in the funnel of wind and was swept away to another land. When he finally landed, he lay still in a field of gently swaying daisies.

Moral: Accept yourself for who and what you are. Accept others as they are.

Some things I love

Some things I love

This compilation, is a snapshot of some of my Art. It moves between Australian Summer bushland, an Egyptian waterlilly and watery reflections, to fractal blossoms, butterflies, starry dolphins and children; to the strength of a dragon and a lion. The photo at the bottom left corner is me at one of my children’s fantasy workshops, where a small boy is being sprinkled with fairy dust… I hope you enjoy 🙂

IT’S THE LITTLE THINGS THAT COUNT

IT'S THE LITTLE THINGS THAT COUNT

I’d like to think that most of the time little things matter more than the big things. When you think about it and think microscopically, most of earth is made up of space, space that we can not see, yet just because we can’t see it, doesn’t mean it is not there, and that it is not important. Far from it! Beautiful things like flowers, with their magnificent colour, design and perfume and dew drops, with their rainbow and diamond lustre are simply magnificent and free! Have a look at this gorgeous butterfly that landed on my daughter’s hand. These little things are truly valuable! 🙂
