Look at them, look at us and look at them, the man heading the parade screamed. Walking on trampolines, he wore a white, long tunic with a red circle painted on his chest, and a pointy white hat. Those who followed looked like centipedes and beetles, their heads bowed, wearing colored backed costumes. Some were riding unicycles but their head was covered by a wiry, meshy mask. People were fascinated and scared, some leaning from their windows, others closing them at the nearing of the parade. A few followed the costumed buffoons, some followed the followers and by the time their galley sailed from the island, a thousand people saluted them from the docks. Where they went, who they were, it was never discovered, but stories abound on their fate and on their life after the parade.

  1. I love your drawings… they create the urge to color them… 🙂

  2. I so enjoyed your posts! Funny, I don’t feel the urge to color them. Instead I feel that I can breathe fully and deeply.
