I have the same treatment like people with cancer and leukemia.Sometimes, cancer patients and I have a chat over life. Nothing different between cancer patients and me.
The point is how to live this life fully.
I'd spend time in creating something rather than complain about the disability
in the leg. I'm a practical realist.
The below is my favorite prayer.


Lord, grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can,
and
wisdom to know the difference.
Also, experiences have taught me that self-trust and confidence makes an optimistic attitude or keep up hope. Sometimes, the weak leg makes me sad, as I work hard on exercises that do not improve it. But I do not worry. People call me "Very positive."
Well, I've learned...

When life gives me lemons...
I make lemonade!
Nice!!

Hahahaha, a good sense of humour makes our world happy.
BTW, I'm seeking different approachs in watercolour not to get stuck in mannerism!I really enjoyed this sketch. Especially, this baby's eyes and the face caught me. Ah, life!! Full of life!!
But I'd remake it with a background or with a different approach.
Sadami, fearless! Try "new."

Thank you for kind regards. Have a wonderful day.
Take Care and Happy Painting!!

    1. Hi, HaniHani,
      良かったですねえ。貴方のblogを楽しみしています。社会学でマジでこの先、社会階級はコンピューターを持つものと持たない者に分かれるであろう、と教授が宣った。マサに現実。あっても使えない者は社会からとりのこされます。正直,必死でprogramsに喰らいついて振り落とされない様にしているのが私。お互い頑張りましょう。
      Cheers,Sadami

  7. Sadami, you not only make lemonade, you set up a lemonade stand and sell it to others who need reminders that lemonade is like life - sweet and tart :) Have a wonderful week; thanks for sharing these sketches and this post which always reminds me of what a big, strong heart you have! I heard a talk from an illustrator of childrens books (she also designs toys) Saturday and it was very interesting.

    1. Hi,Cathy,
      Thank you. Yes, it is sometimes not easy. Once, our boss told me, "Sadami, do not say, "It's hard." Say, "Not easy(=I'll make it)."" Ever since, I always tell myself soʚ(ˆ◡ˆ)ɞ.
