Bouncing Down a Country Road

“If we blindly accept someone else’s beliefs or opinions – taking them as our own – then we set ourselves up for disappointment and heartache. If we do not examine another’s viewpoint, in the light of our own experiences and abilities, we place the control of our happiness or sorrow in someone else’s hands.”

Bouncing Down a Country Road – 5″ x 7″ Watercolor & Ink

Bounce is this week’s word for Illustration Friday.  As this truck bounces his way back home after a trip to the farmer’s market, the rocks on the bumpy road are causing his load of fresh fruit to nearly bounce completely out of the truck.  In afterthought, I should have painted a couple pieces of fruit laying on the side of the road.  Oh well… too late.  🙂

Liane Cordes is the Author of Reflecting Ponds.  I could find no biographical information on Liane, but I found this about her book:

The Reflecting Pond is a collection of meditations that takes one subject at a time and covers it in depth. Whether we have a concern about self-acceptance, fear, friendship, or love, there is a chapter full of understanding thoughts. Used as an extra dose of support on specific issues, this book will help us think through day-to-day living problems.
