Illustration Friday: Aging


This is my first post. It's a little late... waiting for paint to dry! I was inspired by my 3-year old's "pretend crabs" chasing her away from her "pretend beach party" today. I am no hermit crab expert, mind you but I understand that as they age, they instinctively know when it is time to trade in their current accommodations for the bigger, better deal. I am currently intrigued by the idea that as people age, they also turn in their "encasements" — sets of ideas, patterns of behavior, stale relationships, etc. and are fully transformed into... brand new CRABS!
