how long

I watch the water slowly creep up around me, I move to what I believe to be a safer place on the boat. I try to convince myself that situations can be changed for the better, that perseverance can overcome many seemingly insurmountable obstacles. I pass the Captain. The Captain doesn’t say the boat is sinking, that all we have done is for not, to go and try to save ourselves. The Captain designates who gets thrown overboard to temporarily lighten the ship.

I have seen many thrown overboard. Some went willingly, some went with sad faces and some fear as to what was to become of them. I wonder how long can they last in that cold water?

To quote Robert Louis Stevenson’s Long John Silver; “Them that dies will be the lucky ones.” I fought against that manner of thinking. Do what you can to survive, to make it work.  Now perhaps, looking around at the sinking, crumbling vessel that was once a mighty ship…. I wonder how long before the Captain points and signals that I am to be sent overboard.

Doodle United: Adjective Snowman

For the first Doodle United of the new year, we got the assignment of Adjective Snowman, in honor of the great Bill Watterson, Creator of Calvin and Hobbs... specifically "Snow Goon strips" We were given a link that is a random Adjective Generator.

We were to Set the Limit to '1,' and hit refresh. The adjective that was generated we were to place in front of the word Snowman, and BOOM. Draw it. IT was fun.

Doodle United for Monday November 3rd, Gargoyle

For the last of the Halloween type stuff for the year, the topic was Gargoyles for Doodle United.... I decided to solve this with a gargling gargoyle, or is it gargle-goyle?
