About R.E.W

I am author, artist, history buff, wishing to share these three passions of mine with anyone who cares to read this blog. The main drive between these three deep interests of mine is imagination.

History isn't just people and events in a dusty book. Writing isn't just words in a tome. Art isn't just random images in a photograph, sketch or painting. I'll give you examples of what they really are.

For logic, we are doing a project and we must integrate fallacies to persuade our audience to care about our topic. And I am excited. Extremely enthusiastic about this. Maybe over-much. Because . . . I’m going to do my project on an American hero. And I am determined to evoke pity from my audience, even if they don’t give a whit for M. Lewis otherwise.

And of course I’ll post a sketch I made of him. Now that I’m reading Hamlet, I’m realizing why historians ALWAYS include quotes from Hamlet in history books about Lewis. He and Hamlet are alike in many ways, which is rather strange. They both met the same sort of demise, both suffered “the pangs of despised love” . . .

(Courtesy of Premier Prismacolor) I made this a while back, when I could draw M. L. excessively sometimes, back in the homeschooling days. When I could sit and dream, while my music played quietly, while my hand sketched. When I could write pages and pages of Diana and Lewis. (NOSTALGIA *alert*) Haha . . .

If he lived in modern times, or if he came to the 21st century by some odd phenomenon (time travel!!!), I’m sure he would find a connection with all of those heartbreaker songs floating around out there. Actually, I should say the heartbreaker songs dominate the music industry. *shrugs*
