Crow Liner

Once in a while, there's this one line that takes up all the space in our heads. It roams and runs around, it rolls and jumps up high, until this line has become a part of us. 'Liner Doodles' is where I write those lines and create my own doodles for them, these lines are meant to be preserved. 

A very disturbing picture made it to the front page of one of Pakistan's leading newspapers.

My Baba handed the newspaper to me in the morning, he's the one who got me into the habit of reading them. But, I closed my eyes. He made the Is-Everything-Ok-Question-Mark face. I explained that there's a picture I'd prefer not looking at on the front page. He laughed. And said,

"Have you heard of the crow who closes its eyes just before the cat is about to attack? Or, the ostrich that buries its head in the ground when a flood is approaching?"

Love you Baba <3

At times when facing things we don't want to see, we often hide our face within the pillow, it doesn't symobilize fear, it shows that probably that's not what we want. :)
Beautifully portrayed. :)

A second before we stand to lose all, we close our eyes to the tyrant outside world and take refuge within one last space where persistent hope lingers, within us.

I never knew about the crow although my mum always quotes about the ostrich. Inspiring post. :)

@Ghadeer. Sure is.

@Ph_ No problem :)

@Purple Assassin. Well, that is one way to put it. :)

@Rajesh. Yes, hope within us. And, becoming hopeless is probably the greatest loss.

@Ridx. Neither did I. I had heard of the Ostrich too but the crow was new. Thank you.

Frankly speaking, I don't read the front page, and void the telly for news. Its all TRP and nothing else.

@Cassandra. Thank you :D

@Zeba. :D

@Haddock. Well, I usually do. But, I refrain from watching news on TV then. So, yeah.

@Mirage. Well, good to know that I put something new out there.

@I Romanticize. It was of a girl injured from the blast in Peshawar (Pakistan). I don't know where that newspaper went though, else I would've sent the image to you.

@Creative Mind. Oh right :p Haha. Thank you :)
