The Enemy is more difficult
and Stealth is not the style
of the True Hero.
on the white playing field
where red blood shall melt
in the Silence of Snow
And who shall take the lead?
Only the True Hero.
This beautiful illustration was recently sent to
me as a surprise gift by Maia Chavez Larkin, who writes a blog called Une
Envie de Sel. She simply asked me for my address, et voila! Thankyou Maia!! I do love this piece
of work and I have (typically) stylistically adapted it to myself. I am the
girl with the red ribbon tied around the wolf. In the vain hope that Lupus is no
longer leading me, I am taking the lead.But notice the ribbon tied intricately around my
own right ankle, and the jaunty lift to the wolf's right leg? I return to hospital on Monday for a week long course of Intravenous Immunoglobulins. So who really wins? Who really leads?No one knows, in
the silence of snow, who takes the lead and who must follow.
