drawing challenge: rara avis

For this drawing challenge I had to google first what "rara avis" means.

I had several ideas, but then I remembered this situation a few years ago:

I was traveling by bike to work. When I cross the bridge, where my office is, it made a sudden "splash". I looked down and saw that a pigeon had crapped on my right sneaker. I was very upset because I wore new sneakers and pigeon shit is persistent and difficult to remove. 
When I told this to my colleagues, someone said: if a pigeon shits you on the shoe while biking, then this brings happiness, because it happens so rarely!
And it's true! What an accurate timing it takes for that to happen.
So, I was grateful for the rest of the day for this special moment.

And so this is my "rara avis".

Mein Friseur ist für den Rest des Jahres ausgebucht!
Jetzt soll ich zu einem anderen gehen auf seine Empfehlung.

Oder soll ich doch wieder mein eigener Friseur werden? Sieht dann so aus:

My hairdresser is fully booked for the rest of the year!
Now I should go to another one on his recommendation.

Or should I be again my own hairdresser? Looks like this:

Should I be a publisher?
One author I had already.
And I could publish artists postcards and calendars.

I will think about it.

drawing challenge: underwear

Underwear... what a theme for drawing challenge.
My first thought: no selfies!
My second one: what to do?

When thinking about underwear the last days I remembered this task, my coach a few years ago gave me once: "Tell you in the next week every day ten times that you are thankful that your pants do not pinch."
First, I have a good laugh about it. 
But I have made the task and initially I laughed every time when I was grateful in thoughts that my pants do not pinch. But already on the second day something had changed. I stopped laughing and began to be thankful that I'm healthy, that I have a nice apartment, that I have such a dear sister, that the sun is shining, that a bird chirping on. 
The task has shown me that there are so many things - small and large - in life, for which I can be grateful every day. And I should be grateful every day! 
So, today I am grateful for the theme "underwear" - brought to us by Stefanie - that has reminded me again of this simple instrument, to be happy and satisfied.

Thank you dear sister!
