paradise is in your point of view

















"To see a world in a grain of sand and heaven in a wild flower, hold infinity in the palms of your hand and eternity in an hour."

- William Blake, from Auguries of Innocence

Very nice illo and very apporppriate quote - I totally agree, paradise doesn't have to be a complicated or innaccessible thing, it is often in the simple and the obvious.

Fine flow-like a song. I like the delicate, could blow away look. Wonderful, and one your best, I think Heartful!

That's one of my favourite poems. I used to have it written on the first page of my diary. Beautiful drawing. It must have taken you a while to make it so intricate.
