Peacock by Deborah Sheehy

The sparrow is sorry for the peacock at the burden of his tail.

Rabindranath Tagore

In recent weeks I’ve developed a bit of a fascination with Peacocks (despite my usual preference for the more subtle, and often overlooked, beauty of a wren or a sparrow). These birds are, understandably, a source of rich inspiration, symbolism and stories and have been throughout…

Tiny doodlings and creating in the little moments

When time is limited but the urge to create is bubbling away I have found that drawing a tiny doodle can ease the itch, so to speak.
