Do I know what I'm doing? Not completely. I am seeking images that ring true. December has been an odd month for me. I have been concerned about a lot of things. When this happens I wake early and try to figure it out. It is not all about my life, or my art. Indeed, it is me in transition. Yesterday's drawing displays this quandary of meditation. Rats coexist with us. They are not going away, and no matter how many we squash, there will be more. Thus the rat in the room. I will slog back into this mess today. It is nothing I fear. In fact, it is the animator of my life. There are problems to be solved, and without problems we require nothing but air, food, and shelter. I'll take all of it, with an occasional solution to tell me I am making headway. Of course there is the question, "Headway to where?" I don't know, but that far off, unseen, unobtainable goal, keeps me going. I will be back in the studio today, and I will be working on all the other problems my life presents. It is good.
