I have years and years of experience surfing…the web. I’ve never actually been surfing but it’s definitely something I want to try! Day 20 of the July challenge by @journaling-junkie and with a doodle inspired by @chibird (one of my very favorite tumblrs)! Normally I would ink over it but I erased what was supposed to be a simple doodle so many times I figured why tempt fate?

  • Pen: Platinum Balance, Fine
  • Ink: Noodler’s Army Green
  • Writing Music: Pacific Rim Soundtrack, Ramin Djawadi
I am building a house where the floor is made up of strength where the walls are crafted of ambition where the roof is a masterpiece of forgiveness. I am building myself.

I was so desperate to be understood that I would grab people and shove them inside my heart- where they stuck out like splinters, and it would hurt every time I felt anything.
—  Eliot Knight
i am blessed with

the mountain’s solidity
and the lilie’s softness,
the lightning’s strength
and the tranquil sea’s sabr.

I am blessed with

the moon’s noor
and the forest’s modesty,
the desert’s silence
and the rain’s rahma.

i am blessed.

to have been made
of only a handful clay
and yet -
all of His creation’s strengths.
