This is a digital illustration I did of my family as ‘SuperHeroes’. I made posters and handed them out as Christmas presents. This was about 10 years ago, so much has changed since I did this, so it’s bittersweet for me to look at it now, but I thought it was worth sharing.


Behold and Eye are this week’s prompt words chosen by Ronovan Hester of Ronovan Writes.

Ron hosts a challenge that anyone could participate in called Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge every Monday, and you have until Sunday to create a post featuring your haiku poem. He is an author and poet and also does author interviews and much more on his blog. Be sure to check it out. Read Ron’s Haiku Prompt Challenge Guidelines for more information.

When I was a child

I lifted my eyes and saw

The good in all things

I think sometimes we have to stop and see the world through the eyes of a child. It refreshes the soul.♥

Iron Man, one of my favorite superheroes. It turns out Robert Downey Jr. is a real-life superhero too.

‘If we had to have celebrities, it seemed to me that Clooney was absolutely the best kind.’

Chris Pratt and Chris Evans are real-life superheroes. Look at the smile on that little girl’s face.

No these are not celebrities or models. These people are real south Florida fire fighters and real-life superheroes. ‘A shirtless set of twins and a salt-and-pepper hunk flanking a striking female model clad in firemen’s bunker pants and a sports bra, Jessica Alba abs exposed. No, it’s not a photobomb, and the young lady is actually not a model. That’s Jasmine (28), a firefighter with the Hialeah Fire Department, joined by her brothers Christian (Miami Beach Fire Rescue) and Ivan Jr. and their father Ivan Sr. (both City of Miami Fire Rescue).’
