I found a leopard frog in the grass awhile ago and felt inclined to draw it, being the first I’ve seen in a long time. The decline in frog populations has been extremely noticeable over the decade. Even our boisterous spring peepers have dwindled significantly.
The quiet moments of excitement remind me why I care about the future. I don’t want to let the uncertainties of life distract from my core values. Spending a few minutes watching my new friend reminded me to recenter.
