I decided to show an old post for my 2012 World Sketchbook Tour.
I made it as a remembrance of my Dad who passed in 2010.
He always wanted to travel, and be outdoors, when he got the chance to travel to Aus on the £10 package deal that was where we went lol
"It's Summer Where You Are"
As a child you played in meadows, walking miles, no use for car...just water and some biscuits, cos it's summer where you are!
Hoping to travel around the world, like your favourite movie star...
building muscles fit to swing through trees, cos it's jungle where you are!
Taking chances when they come your way, your following a star.....cross the heavens to the land of sun, cos it's shining where you are!
Teaching us to love this world, watching life within a jar.....to appreciate the little things, cos it's a classroom where you are!
Unhappy in a crowded place, you'd walk us oh so far.....
to find a spot without a trace.... of motorbike or car!
When to play...and when to rest...and not to wound or scar...
to watch the bird upon the nest.....cos it's peaceful where you are!
Though your grave is cold and muddy....like this book you'll travel far....cos one thing I know for certain....
It's Summer Where You Are!!!
Still thinking of you...
With Love... As Always XXX
