    Pat as usual I like always your blogs. I am happy about your energy level.
    That means better blogs, blogs and articles.
    Last 15 days without changing any of my habits even I am very calm I can’t sleep before 3.30-4.30 am of my grief. I am not really worried but I love to sleep like you. to get some positive energy ! I never slept like you for the last three years.
    I like your drawing with color combinations.
    If it is figurative and metaphorical why a pig symbolize for cleaning ?
    Pigs were suppose to be not clean !
    If I am wrong please kindly excuse me.
    Life is not easy for me with my grief in the same time I have got to take it as it is.

      Actually, pigs are a very clean animal when left to their own devices. It’s only when they are penned and forced to live in their own excrement that they are dirty. I think they do like to roll in mud on hot days, though, because it cools them off. Unlike humans, they don’t have sweat glands. There was no real meaning for the picture (which I didn’t draw, unfortunately). I just thought it was cute. I think it was an illustration from the story of the three little pigs.

      I’m sorry you can’t sleep. Grief is hard, and the stress causes insomnia. Maybe someday you will find peace. I hope so.
