Is This The Life You Want?

Hopefully, you have enjoyed one of these days, months, or years: A time when you looked back on your life story and decided that every miserable moment of your past was secretly a blessing because it brought you to this surprising, wonderful present.

I drew this family portrait for the cover of my annual music exchange. It was one of those years, thank G-d. I'm going to carry it with me into my next blue period. I'll use its memory to put my depressions into place, one after another towards the next unexpected joy.
