Another Flowerdy Dog – Sharpie on Vellum
This is the same dog as yesterday’s post.
I know it was unexpected to have such a “normal” looking dog on that
post, so today I can reassure you that I am still a little nuts. The photo reference was from Dewi at WetCanvas.
James M. Barrie (1860-1937), Scottish author and
dramatist, best known for his character Peter Pan. The play Peter Pan
or, The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up was first performed in 1904 and
published in 1928;
All children, except one, grow up. They soon know that they will
grow up, and the way Wendy knew was this. One day when she was two years
old she was playing in a garden, and she plucked another flower and ran
with it to her mother. I suppose she must have looked rather
delightful, for Mrs. Darling put her hand to her heart and cried, “Oh,
why can’t you remain like this for ever!” This was all that passed
between them on the subject, but henceforth Wendy knew that she must
grow up. You always know after you are two. Two is the beginning of the
More on James M. Barrie here.
