Magpie season is well and truly under way, and as a service to Honzablog readers, I have produced this handy guide to Magpie safety for you to print out, laminate and print. May it serve ye well!

Here is a video of an actual Magpie attack. Keep safe on those streets, dear reader!

I used  to live in a town that was famous for having four seasons in one day. But now I live in a town that every day seems to be warm and sunny. But summer's coming, then the weather gets interesting!

Drawvember 1 - HOPE

What does hope look like? It is not mere wishful thinking, but the sure expectation of something better, unseen as yet, but coming. The bird sings in the pre-dawn dark in the certain hope that the sun will hear her singing and arise. Hope does not disapoint.

Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. 

 I have a little challenge happening on Facebook where for the month of November, or Drawvember as I have rather cleverly (in my own mind at least) renamed it, I will attempt a drawing a day based on one word suggestions of facebook friends. The first word suggested, and indeed chosen is 'hope'.   At the end of the month, I might get the image with the most 'likes' and develop it further into a painting or other more substantial artwork. Perhaps then I could auction it off as a fundraiser for some worthy cause. Use my art to bring real hope, not just a drawing of it!
