It's a Vancouver rainy day. I'm chilling out in my favorite cafe, drawing a dwarf inspired by the latest Hobbit. Suddenly a girl and her dad join my table
After that she asks me for my number, and while I'm giving her my contacts she confesses that at first she thought I was a girl with short hair, until she saw my wiskers.
Our team works great and now we start another drawing, but it's time for her to leave. The sun is out at this point, just for a moment, breaking through the gloom of the day. I give her my eraser and my pencil too, I always have one to spare.
Kailani doesn't want to leave , but she obeys politely to her dad. Before leaving "We are good friends now " she says. She hugs me and she leaves the cafe with a big smile stamped on her face, keep waving throught the window. As she hops on her car and disappears, the sun goes into hiding again leaving me wondering if all that really happened.
Kailani, if you are reading this, remember never to let your creativity fade away, and never to cage your imagination. Use the blue pencil to let it fly high in the sunny sky.
