I feel so many emotions painting this card - love, sadness, anger, longing. I am thinking of my father. He is a man who has felt and expressed his emotions intensely. I remember being embarrassed as a child when he sobbed in movies. But, as I too am "emotional" I now find comfort in the tears we share whenever we greet each other or say goodbye on my trips home to South Africa. He is a jovial, compassionate and loving man but also is prone to melancholy and rage. Dad is getting old and is not well, too often in his cups and I am so far away - I miss him and yet, he is always with me. From my father I learnt to follow my heart, to live my passion, to be a dreamer.
