illustration friday (fragile)

What power and resiliency our planet has! And how teeming with life. And yet, that life can be so fragile. When the honey bees recover (as I believe they will), I will watch them with even greater fascination and affection. I share a name with them, you see. Deborah comes from the Hebrew word for bee, and in spite of my nervousness around insects in general, I've felt a kinship with bees since childhood.


  1. Debbie, I had a few close encounters with bees as a child, and was afraid of them for decades.. Now I just figure the worst I'll get is a sting (I'm not allergic), so, not a big deal; of course we don't go out of our way to upset them). I think they are so beautiful, and they're always working away!! I pray that they do come back strong again. Yes, the earth does seem resilient, in spite of our mistreatment.
    I really love your artwork in general and this one in particular.. Sigh !

  2. Hi, Debbie, I know your feeling, "BEE my Baby."
    Cheers, Sadami

  3. "The bees are in bloom" I simply love this sentence.
