Help! Hello. Drawing Luke Hockley.

Dear Self,

I drew a picture today of two people floating in the air.

One is holding a bunch of balloons that say Help!

The other is holding a bunch that say Hello.

The person with the Hello balloons is trying to get the attention of the person with the Help balloons…unsuccessfully.

What does it mean?

I get what it means. But what does it mean for me?

Am I looking for help and not seeing the people around me offering it? Am I offering help and the people I’m offering it to don’t see it?


Or is it just a funny little scribble that really means nothing in particular to my life?

I certainly used to feel like the person holding the Help balloons, not seeing those around me who were offering help.

Maybe it is a reminder to not fall into this trap again.

Things are changing rapidly at the moment, it is very possible that I do.


That’s what it is.

It is a reminder to see the people around me who are there to say hello when I need a bit of love and support.
