I love puppies. I used to have one. And while I was drawing this, Dzeni was on my mind.
I used to have a puppy myself when I was 5 years old. I called her Dzeni. She wasn’t a dog with a pedigree. She was one of those street dogs, and I loved her so much. She was so adorable brown little creature, and had those sparkly eyes, that always look at you with question marks above. When I looked at her, if felt like she always wanted to ask me something. She used to stand in front of my room when I was asleep, and didn’t let anyone in. I used to torture her in a childlish way, to climb on her and make her run a lot, and always cuddle her, even when she’s tired. And she never got mad. Even though she sometimes didn’t like it at all. She was a puppy that every child would want. She wasn’t dalmatian, or golden retriever, but she was full of love and dedication towards me. She was so protective and caring, and oh, how much I loved her. I still believe that there is such strong connection between a dog and a kid.
Even now, 15 years later, I still love her endlessly, and she always has a special place in my heart. I still remember our games like it was yesterday. She was a part of my life, and she left a special mark there.
While I drew this postcard, I was thinking about her. She looked like those two guys, with those big eyes and eyes full of questions. I miss her. So much!
Don’t forget to always stay a child in your heart!
Sometimes I think about growing up. And no, it doesn’t scare me, it’s just… it’s not how I imagined life. I don’t want worries and fears about tomorrow.
I want a life, like a child has. Not to worry about a single thing, just to live each day like it is the last one! Laugh a lot, do crazy stuff, buy an RV and travel the world. Quit your job, which doesn’t make you happy and go around the world and do what you always wanted to do. Sing, dance, laugh, paint, cook…
And sometimes you realise, you always have the child inside. It is here even now. The childlish me made me write all of this now. Made me think about going somewhere far away and be happy. It is always here that kid we have, we just need to stop for a second and listen…
I made a new postcard today. It is this flower one, that is all ready to go out in the wild and make someone happy. I don’t usually draw flowers, and now I realize I maybe should have spent more time on drawing flowers, since this drawing really calmed me down while I drew it.
It might be possible for you to not know this, but I draw, and I love drawing. I mostly draw cartoon characters, because of my sister, and I upgrade myself every day and I am always willing to learn new stuff and experiment.
Because I love both drawing and postcards, I decided to combine that in one thing. And now, I basically draw a picture and make a postcard out of it, and I send it to people and bring them happiness. Isn’t that wonderful?
