Illustration Friday: Bounce

This is an illustration for Illustration Friday's theme: "bounce." You might wonder what a hermit crab with a castle attached to it has to do with this weeks theme. To me the word bounce brought to mind the fact that I move from place to place very frequently. This can be a good and bad thing. My many homes have brought many opportunities, but as I grow older, I find that I long to settle down a little. Sometimes I wish I was a snail or a hermit crab- a creature who can carry their home with them wherever they go!
     As I write this, I am stuck at an airport. I was "bounced," from my flight due to bad weather and must wait out the storm. Given ample time, I drew this little drawing while waiting at the gate.
Stormy weather in DC.

Finally made it to Kentucky to visit with family.

I had to look twice at that airport drawing. It looked like a photograph done with creative lighting options!
