Looking into a new year
Have a look above. The human character in this illustration is seeing his future in the mirror, not his actual reflection. In the New Year, he sees himself happily writing a story! When we start anew, we can begin to see ourselves in new ways, accomplishing new and desired goals.
There is a second character down below, a mouse. The mouse is in a different place. He is anticipating finishing a story, an epic tale, and is equally excited about what the New Year will bring!
Elves look at time differently from humans and mice, however, we too celebrate endings and new beginnings. New years are times of great expectations.
(A Drawing tip also sprang up from this artwork… symmetry-between-worlds!)
