Based on an illustration by Marc Johns.
The story behind it, if you will, is that my family have suffered a bunch of bad luck recently. One of my aunties died at New Year of cancer and the other is on an End of Life pathway as she is also dying of terminal cancer. She’s only got a few weeks left. It’s kind of a reminder to keep ploughing along when life throws challenges at us such as this. I’m pretty good at this anyway, but everyone has their down days.
