When I was in kindergarten,
 my teacher got each of us an abalone shell,
 of our own to keep.

It did NOT look like this.

I remember thinking the shell was a treasure.
I kept it on the top shelf of my childhood
 bedroom closet.

Penguin things remind me of my brother.
This is son. 
I get to see my nephew in one week. :)

One Christmas, I painted a calendar of penguins for my brother. Of course I don't have photos of that.

Here's my non-penguin
art journal page,
 It follows the same hoodie
black, white, and red color scheme.

It says:  I need to love the girl, and the wolf inside of me.
Don't we all have some big bad wolf inside of us? ;)
