One of my biggest challenges with all the drawing that I have been doing lately is remembering that photo-realism isn’t the goal.
Month: January 2019
The community centre where our church offices are located is starting a Tuesday afternoon social club and I get to work on making marketing materials for it!
I took the big kids into town so that my wife could have some quiet and a chance to rest while she’s not feeling well. It was a 5 miles of walking kind of day spent making holograms at [FACT](https://www.fact.co.uk/) and looking at modern art at [Tate Liverpool](https://www.tate.org.uk/visit/tate-liverpool). Today was a good day.
Nothing like having a bunch of people over for a prayer meeting on a Friday night. Now it’s time to unwind with the new season of _The Grand Tour_ and then maybe a few more chapters of _Bird Box_.
It’s snowing in Liverpool!!! ❄️
Having one of those days where I seem to only get a third of anything done.
Regarding the [reading plan](http://www.danalcantara.me/2018/12/28/reading-through-the.html) again, it is really helping me to be familiar with books of the Bible that I otherwise would only read once or twice each year. Constant rereading is proving to be very helpful.
_The early morning belongs to the Church of the risen Christ. At the break of light it remembers the morning on which death and sin lay prostrate in defeat and new life and salvation were given to mankind._ – Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Life Together
Currently reading: [Bird Box](https://micro.blog/books/9789400504615) by Josh Malerman 📚
It’s a very grey day and it’s been perfect for working through reading the second half of a book for my counselling course.
