The Fox-Child's Lament
  The little grey fox sat in the tall grass atop his favorite knoll, alone.  He sighed again as he looked out over Sapphire Lake and the surrounding neighborhoods.  Where had all his playmates gone?  One little cat in particular the fox missed most of all.  She was always easy to pick out on a playground full of other kids.  He flicked his ears thinking of her.  They still had flecks of green and yellow paint stuck to the fur from where one of the other kids had painted them during the big water-balloon fight.  It was only coincidence that they almost matched the bright green and yellow of his friend's hair.  That and her teal fur we

Sandra!!  It is so great to hear from you again!  How are you and your family?  Wonderful and Happy I hope!!

Yes, I love my dragon book and still look through it now and again.  :-)  As you are looking at my DA page I'm sure you can tell I haven't drawn anything in some time.  (I figured out that I write better than I draw. ;-))

Took a moment to follow your icon back to your own DA page and see that you are still doing beautiful dragon art.  AND you have a new book out!  Are you going to sell me a copy of this one too?  Please??  :-)

I'm doing well! I did noticed you had literature on your DA rather than just drawing- have you tried different mediums for drawing though? My brother enjoys drawing with big chunky pieces of charcoal and not worrying about detail, meanwhile my mother prefers oil and watercolor. Maybe you just didn't find the best one for you!

My son started school in September, and I quit my job at Bell 2 1/2 years ago. The first thing I did was write the second book.  Now I just finished redoing my website at www.canadiandragon.com and setting up a Patreon account (I haven't officially launched either yet, I literally just finished them last week!) Next step is to start working on more drawings (in the hopes of using them in a 3rd book down the road), setting up technique videos for Patreon, and getting back into sculpture.

And I could definitely sell you a copy of my book if you'd rather one directly from me! Of course I'll have to do a custom drawing in it if you get one! Just send me an email at canadiandragon@hotmail.com and we can work out the details.

Glad to see you're still being creative though!

Actually, I apologize for not adding you to my list earlier.  I guess I talk to you often enough that I never realized I wasn't actually "Watching" you!  :-)

Wow!  That is really fast!  It would probably take at least that long for me to mail something similar to my mom 440 miles away.  8-)
Wish I could remember how long it took for Ariel's art to get to me.  I know it was way longer than that though!  And he told me it took -many- months for him to receive something from Germany.
We have a pretty big holiday this Wednesday (July 04), so the post office won't be working that day.  I'll tell Dad & Alice it could arrive anytime from late this week to early(ish) next week.  Thanks!

Thats what I realised as well-those are the dangers of talking often;P we forget stuff and take it for granted :)

hopefully it will take this short only, but with post you never know. I hope she was sending it to the right place, this girl in the post office 😬
Please let me know when it comes.
yes, Ariel’s country post office is really rubbish. i am actually considering to use parcel force-they would be probably more effective there.

thank you for another Flikka chapter-FINALLY!
sorry for no replying, but lately there is so much drama at work, I am just a bit overwhelmed :(
