My name is Roy Lee Leonhardt. I have been here before and must leave a comment this time around. Your story and illustration have great significance on a world level.
These bad dreams and negative thoughts and energies are of great personal developmental and even spiritual importance. I Love you mother and the way she explained it to you. What a wonderful kind and giving soul. You must really Love her very much. I know she sure does Love you. Thanks for posting this I don’t know why I was drawn to it. Perhaps your name or the like. But just thought I had to share.
Love Your blog. Keep up the great work.
Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts and experiences. I’m glad you enjoyed the post and wish you the best of luck in your efforts. I do believe art (and cartoons) comes from and can tap into a very powerful place. Is it good or bad that artwork and stories can elicit negative responses, and especially in children? I don’t know, but somehow I think these experiences are valuable. I certainly do think it is valuable that artists be free to express themselves in ways that are sometimes grotesque or haunting or stressful for the viewer. I imagine you can learn a lot by someone’s response to a work of art or a story and still allow an environment that is very safe for that person. It is only an image, after all. That seeming innocence can put us at ease a little more and also allow us to get even deeper and closer to that fear than we would normally be willing, perhaps.
You’ve provoked some interesting thoughts. Thanks for commenting.]]>
