The routine of difficult times

I hate politics and don't like to listen to the news. I always joke that if the news will be important enough, they will find their way to me. Unfortunately, now the news found me and I found myself surfing at the news sites all over the web, desperate to find the answer. Actually, I'm tired to think and speak about it. I just hope so much that this war will end as soon as possible, that both sides will find another language except the language of force to talk to each other, I do believe there is a way to live together side by side.
You can say that sketching is a kind of escapism, but we all need to go on, so here they are, pieces of my routine.

Marina, you and your family have not been far from my mind. Beyond the usual extraordinary energy and attitude of your drawings, this post is especially moving in light of what you all must be experiencing. Thinking of you and wishing you safe days.

Thinking of you and your lovely family, Marin. Beautiful sketches, and a look into simple pleasures and joys in trying times. To peace. And peaceful resolutions!

You've been in my thoughts too Marina, sketching a small way to cope with uncertainty and worry - you make it seem easy but surely it isn't. Be safe, hope sense and peace win the battle somehow.

thank you so much, dear Melanie, Suhita and Cathy! Really hope that most of the people from the both sides just want to live in peace.
