Not good enough









Happy Passover. Thanks very much for all the warm welcome backs. I'm going away for a bit. See you next weekend -- around the 17th.

A really great story. And I absolutely love that last picture. That is just how it can feel. I've been there too. I hope that you and your little friend can find a way to work it out.

Happy Passover!

Happy Passover. Love the view from the top of the illutration of the two of you having your dicussion on the living room carpet.

I have had the same feeling too! And incidentally, it was maths for me as well, haha! As for a new blog post, I have been thinking of writing something but i'm losing out on topics. So you can consider this as my break from the blog, ha! I'm a student going to classes to pass my entrance test for becoming a CA, like the CPA over there :) It's a lot of hardwork. I know I can do it.

P.S I have worked really hard on maths for some years and now I solve calculus with ease. So nothing is definitely difficult or impossible to do :)

Oh and also, enjoy your holidays! :)

A wonderful tale that I think we ALL can relate to! Happy Passover...See you on your return. :)

Beautiful post. I especially like the first pink drawings. I wish you both lots of courage and fun in your explorations. PS -- I'm so glad you are back.

So moving. I love Charlotte's miner's lamp and the spangled beams on your head in the last picture, as the two of you work your way toward the light.

Just keep in mind that there is no one on this planet that is better than you, and you are not better than anyone on this planet. We all excel in different areas, and while there are math geniuses walking around, those geniuses have their weak areas as well. It all evens out; we are all good enough in our way. You have such a gift for drawing, and Charlotte has her own strengths already. The other stuff doesn't matter!
And I, too, loved the overhead perspective of the one panel!

I still have times when things like math become more than I can face
I often wish someone was around to face them with me

your pen and brush lay out a delightful and inspiring tale.

Thanks for the story

Together is the very, very best way to work on anything! An understanding heart is the best way to begin!!

Oh Caroline, I am so happy to find out you are back, although you are leaving for a bit now, LOL. It's formerly Sacred Suzie here, I'm now focusing on food on my blog and taking it easy but wanted to welcome you back and say that I loved this post. I hope she finds her way back to strength and belief that she can do the higher math.

Sounds like me fifty years ago, and still me today, come to think of it! Happy Pesach, my friend!

I like this story. There's so much truth in it.

Have a good "away" time.

See you soon!

Happy Passover!
