Pen on Paper

Mmmm… Molygon 

About 14 years ago, my husband and I lived in Australia. I moved there after we got married (he’d already lived there for a couple of years before that). I loved it there. We didn’t have a lot of money but we did have a wonderful time. We were pennyless newly weds and I still believe that that’s the best kind of newly weds to be. I loved every moment of it.

During our time there, I always told myself that I would buy a didgeridoo and a set of boomerangs when we had more money.  Out of the blue my husband got his dream job in the US.  We couldn’t afford to pay for shipping and so we got rid of all of our stuff and relocated.  I never got my didgeridoo or my boomerangs.

All these years later,  I was doing my share of mindless browsing today when I stumbled upon a set of boomerangs on sale by somebody on facebook.  I am so tempted but if I did buy them, it wouldn’t mean the same to me. I would have no memories attached to it. No story to go with it. But I can’t get it out of my mind. And I think that might have had something to do with how my tile for DivaChallenge#315 turned out ☺️

  1. I love your tile and your thoughts next to it. Maybe you should buy those boomerangs from FB, that is absolutely not the same, but all those (old memories) will be in your mind when you have these (new) ones. Maybe you will regret if you don’t do it now.

  2. Love the story and absolutely LOVE your tile….such a tribal vibe for me from it. Your linework is well executed and the shading is spot on. And I agree with Annemarie, you may want to reconsider getting the boomerangs. Once you do, you will remember your time in Australia.
