I echo the sentiments of other posters--the people of your country are in my thoughts. May you find some comfort in your creativity. From Raudy in the U.S.A.

Hi fellow sketchcrawlers, I will just quote from my blog:
The 32nd world wide sketchcrawl turned out to be a very different day than I imagined. I joined Stella and Åshild in downtown Oslo where a large area was cordoned off and guarded by armed soldiers, a haunting sight in our relatively quiet city. I wasn't quite sure at the time whether it was appropriate to be down there sketching, but it turned out to feel right to leave home and the endless news reports on the television behind and join the crowds walking a slow circle around the devastated area.
Nothing makes sense and it sure isn't sinking in what actually happened, but I am glad I made it down to visit the site first hand.

My sketches:

Beautiful work from a beautiful city!
It felt quite strange sketchcrawling in New York this time and reading about terror in my hometown on the front pages...

Thanks for coming out and participating in the SketchCrawl through a sorrowful time. It's so horrible that some people have to turn their beliefs into exactly what they hate in others. Doesn't make sense.

You did wonderful work just the same. Thanks again.
