Rachel Swyhart
Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
United States
The essence of life is:

The cold hush of the night and then the fat blinding snow that falls, blanketing you, vanishing even before it begins.

Opening the window on the first warm day of spring and feeling the yawn of the world as it wakes up from its long sleep.

A hot cup of coffee in the morning and a foggy mind, still sleeping, only to be awestruck by the beauty of a new dawn.

Working until you feel like you’re going to break but that swell of pride for what you do tides you over until the next day.

Sitting in the middle of a crowd - your crowd, one that you built and bled for - and feeling at home among their smiles.

And walking down a dark street alongside a building, something you’ve done a million times before, and lifting your head to see the sunset flaming the city in pink

and remembering that color like you remember the birth of your first child, like you remember your first lover, your graduation, the day you made a difference in your loved ones life, and every other memory you’ve managed to live through like it was only yesterday and letting those memories carry you on and on into the future where you can make new memories, and feel new things... and live.

Yes! I have the sketch done, but I didn't like it, so I decided to go back to it later.
