Drawings-03·08·2015 Nos. 1, 2, & 3, pencil on paper, 11X14 inches
The first drawing is the worst drawing, but it is the one with the rat, the rat of today's blog title. Yesterday, was an interesting day for a few of reasons. It made a big difference for me to be in the studio as early as possible. No blog written, no email, just coffee and breakfast, then out and into the studio. I have always known my best energy is my early-in-the day energy. At last I have heeded reality. What a difference it made! I wonder why I waited so long to do this, to prioritize energy, i.e. to align my best energy with the best part of me. I tried to explain this conundrum in my last blog post: it was all about confusion. I don't feel confused any longer. I just want to do. Yes, I feel like a rat caught in a cage. I am trying to push myself out of the cage so that I may express that which I have been created to express. That is what rats do, they express their animus, their inner angst. What is the difference between me and a rat? Rats have a modus operandi, a particular way of doing things. I can never do the same thing twice. What makes me like a rat? We both need to get out of our cage.
