Daily Doodle #28

Blown: to fail or break down, as from being operated under extreme or improper conditions.

There's a lot of hopes, dreams, and plans that I had when I got married. I was blown away when became apparent that that it was headed for divorce. My future plans and goals that I had been pursuing. Blown. My sense of trust. Blown. Sometimes it feels like a tornado cut a path through my life. I feel like I've cleaned up most of the mess that it made, but figuring out how to rebuild is a challenge.

Recommended listening:
"I use to think that things were meant to be
So farewell to the old me
farewell to the old me
My life is working better now
It's always changing anyhow"
– Farewell to the Old Me by Dar Williams

Artist's note: I was trying for a visual reference to blowing out a candle and not something violent. Blown out, not blown up.
