    This is Ilse, someone who showed up in my sketchbook, and because I was so intrigued by her expression, and by Leah's suggestion, I opened her a speech bubble, and almost immediately, this showed up:

    I guess that's what she came here to tell me, because there's always struggle, self doubt, discouragement.

    AND IT IS OK! It's ok, life is just a series of small emergencies that you try to resolve and move on. The day you have nothing to worry about, then you should start to get worried. Living life is so beautiful, so full, that you have to see it in a positive way, in a creative way, I always try to see the good side of everything, it helps me balance everything. I am successful on this almost always, like everybody... I guess.

    This is great. I totally agree that art is the subconscious speaking. I like what Ilse has to say. And I think she is relieved that you allowed her to say it.

    Ah, I can breathe a sigh of relief. It's hard to remember when we're in the middle of a struggle that we all go through the valley. Your words (Ilse's words) are very comforting to me today. Thank you.
