Illustration Friday: Remote

How can this remote place feel so much like home...??

That's the question I asked myself over and over again as I toured Israel last year. It was a wonderful journey in so many ways, but one of the most striking impressions that I still can't adequately describe is how it felt like a homecoming for me from the moment I stepped foot there, even though I had never been there before in my life. I can't begin to tell the story of my 11 day trip here, it would take an entire blog to do that - but I can say that the diverse beauty and awesome spirit of the Holy Land is in my heart and soul forever - remote no more.

(I tried to upload some photos from my trip, but Blogger would not cooperate - I'll try in a future post)

  1. I really love the warm and sunny feeling here! I'm sure it felt like home to you because you know it so well...you seem to be one who studies the bible, so it would be like seeing a place and feeling its history after getting to know it over many years from a distance. I am guessing that the smiling lady here is you:> Another lovely illustration so full of your personal meaning and so lovely for us to share.

  2. I would love to see some photos if you can get them up.
    I like how you have been doing the illo with the touch of white around the subject and casting a shadow.
    Perhaps you can post more about your trip. I love visiting places through other peoples experiences.
