It happens and the battle back to normalcy can take a heavy toll. I didn't want to be somber here. I wanted the colors to be bright and pleasant. This is a 6 by 4.25 inch gel pen drawing with color gel and pencil.

Awesome conceptualization Charles! The colors, the images, proportions and content, all bring together this important point about life. I especially love,..."The Way/The Tao Symbol!"

Of course, there's a long road ahead but humans and nature itself after devastation always find a way to regain equilibrium. Unless, of course, there's a second gigantic meteor. In that case, all bets are off. Hope you and yours are doing great. :) PS: You'll notice he's still a few degrees away from actually achieving his goal, hence the title.
