Melinama does Illustration Friday: "Memories"

I'm thinking about doing a series of postcards with old themes.

This is a proverb I read in I. B. Singer's Gimpel the Fool, which I'm currently translating for myself. The Yiddish is hard to translate succinctly, it really says something more like: If/since/because God gives shoulders, one must "shlep" (drag, carry) the pack.
