I sketched this bird skull I found. It had a message to share. Life is bittersweet. Sometimes those sweet moments when we are flying high, are inflection points, peak moments where the whole course of our lives change. But mostly those sweet moments are just fleeting tastes. Inevitably, these cannot last, they are only moments, everything changes.
Sometimes those bitter moments when we are hurt and low, are inflection points, hinge moments when the whole course of our lives change. Sometimes these bitter bits linger on, and the hard hurt of loss feels like it will never end. But inevitably, these cannot last, they are only moments. New doors open, ones we didn't even know were there, everything changes. Life is bittersweet, but it's beautiful just the same.
