Illustration Friday: impatience


Instead of complaining about "impatience" the word that is chosen for Illustration Friday's theme today, I have decided to take the plunge. I know it sounds rather drastic but for some reason "impatience" pushed me over the edge. Farewell my friends, it has been grand.

Well, Val!

I hope those long but nice feet move straight forward!

And if they fall, I hope they roll slowly down stairs!

:D

Hugs!

I'm sure that Dorothy is just going to walk down the stair step house very quickly. Oh wait, could it actually be the wicked witch of the East before the house fell on her? No, I still think it's Dorothy! Hurry Dorothy, click those heels together, that will get you home even quicker than going over the edge. ;)

Ha ha, Val! My heart lurched for a brief moment then I got it... :) Clever and great illo. Also I want to thank you for your fabulous comments at my blog...you are so encouraging to me and though we're technically only "blog buddies", I think you have a beautiful personality and are a great friend! I am doing much better right now. My divorce was final in early July. I think I'm gonna be just OK. :) Thanks again for your support! TRACY

I remembered the time when I like to to jump down from the stairs and each time I jump, I would go up one more step and jump, the highest I tried was 4 steps. Too scary...I suggest you think twice before you jump. I like the little window on the stairs.
