Last week, in one of the facebook group, weekly challenge (Yeah, I play and participate in lot of games), MargaretBremner's String was the focus theme. After the Irma Hurricanes hit the shores of the Atlantic, I felt deeply affected by imagining the devastation caused by them. My memory lane took me back to the earthquake that shook my hometown in Year 2001, and more than 10,000 people lost their lives. Most of the 3 storey building and higher fell down. The survivors left their home for weeks and months, as the trauma of the shaken city tormented them. But, inspite of all the fears and uncertainty, I have seen people coming closer, feeling emotional and love for the other. They talked with their distant families friends and offered help. Some even allowed strangers to live in their big homes, offered them food and psychological care to overcome the traumas. So, it is in my observation that in times of adversities, calamities, humans forget all the barriers and distances they had psychologically created and embrace the other inspite of the differences.
With all these contemplative thoughts and intention, I drew this Zentangle Tile, with MargaretBremner's string, reminding me to pray for the people who went through the recent catastrophes caused by the Hurricanes, followed by the tornadoes. Sending prayers to the lost souls and also for the people who had to lose their essential goods and belongings to the calamities and thieves. Hopefully in coming days, they remain healthy and be able to restore their lives again.
