I learnt to look out for the characters in the world around me. They appear in many forms but usually always in the shapes within wood, stone, the shadows of buildings, fallen leaves, puddle water and fallen litter on the floor. I try to draw them but each time something else materialises. Another character emerges, then I continue the drawing to see what happens.
My former self-talk would tell me that I wasn’t able to draw accurately so I should stop but the new voice inside tells me to continue and allow. My vision is that these characters will be 'helpers' and signs within the secret worlds so that they can help others in the same way that they have helped me to listen to and believe in the voice inside. These characters will play an important role in allowing others to contribute to the story so that we can create a new collaborative future together.
