Monsoon


"A ship in harbor is safe, but that’s not what ships are for."   
Monsoon is an annual spectacle of torrential rains that bring much relief from heat and drought for millions of people on the Indian subcontinent. It also brings untold miseries when rivers swell and lands submerge. A blessing may become a burden when given in excess.

A sketch I started in Photoshop has turned out to be a rocky seashore pelted by Monsoon rains and rough waves. A small yacht is seen making its way from the sea to a safe harbor. After all, this yacht is not built to travel the seas come hell or high water! That's for ships.
