Bonfire Night

At my art therapy class this week we were asked to draw bonfire night. This is what I came up with, I'm sorry that it is so dark and oppressive but I really hate bonfire night and can't help for this to come across in my picture.
I remember going to one when I was little and I really didn't understand why we had to stand around a big fire with strangers in the dark and I found the heat from the fire and the noise of the fireworks very frightening.

Hi Laura,

I don't think I've written here before, but I've been following your blog ever since you sent me the link.

I just realized that you've probably been waiting to hear from me for quite some time now.
I received your letter several months ago, and started writing an answer during summer but somehow I never got around to finish it. It's terrible outdated by now, so I think it's best if I start write a new one and I will do it as soon as possible. The last couple of months have been hard for me, but I'm better now and have gotten back to writing letters again.

I hope you're fine!

Best wishes,
Katarina
