What's it all about? Revelation has it own speed, apparently. Why can't I just be there now? This is about the journey being more important than the destination. Still, you can't blame me for getting impatient. Time and energy limits each day's impact. Is it crazy to be impatient? Or, rather, will impatience drive me crazy? With this in mind, take a look at yesterday's drawings. They are each their own, though No.3 is a response to No.2. I would like to love one over the others, but I don't. Each informs me in a different way. The robust forms contrasted to the little forms in No.1 are emotionally evocative. The limp propeller-like object drooping across the point in No.2 is gloomily downcast. No.3 creates space that I enjoy wandering within. No.4 is a landscape that mysteriously harbors a secretive form in the lower right, hidden, as it is, from the horizon and endless space over the ragid top-edge of the landscape. Each are different in their emotional references. This must be important. Each must open another door in the conundrum that confronts me, animates me.
