is the prompt this week at Illustration Friday
"Life opens up opportunities to you, and you either take them or you stay afraid of taking them."
~ Jim Carrey

When I read this quote I think of all the brave people who have left their homelands in search of 'more' for their families throughout time, throughout the world.
Living in Tasmania, I am particularly aware of the history of forced and willing settlement to a little island so isolated and unique.
The more I delve into the history and admire it's natural beauty, the less I seem to know.
I went to the museum and art gallery this week and was given a special peek into the vaults, by a very lovely and fascinating lady, I am now armed with a little more knowledge and images of this island and especially of the mightly Thylacine (Tasmanian Tiger)
more to come soon....
Hope you have a wonderful weekend
P.S Thankyou for your comments, It's always brilliant to hear from you!
