suddenly i am all eyes, i forget this ME, am liberated from it and dive into the reality of what confronts me, become part of it, participate in it.
as i am intensely drawing lately, i feel like it's the first time i have really, truly seen an oak tree. i never realized the incredible nuances and variations of an oak trees bark before...i can almost feel the roughness of the bark and the smell of the wood as i am drawing. i've never experienced any drawing quite like i have with this one...i get very lost in it. it's no wonder i can barely wait to get to home at night and start drawing!
...i become not less, but more myself. for the time being the split between me and not-me is healed, suspended.

...not the poppies in the antelope valley!!
my boyfriend and i skipped out of work last friday, put the top down and hit the I-5 up north to see the famous carpeted orange fields of poppies we had always heard about but never seen.
unfortunately the poppies were few and far between...especially on the reserve!
what we did see was still beautiful!
and it was a gorgeous sunny day, 82 degree weather, egg salad sandwiches and ice cold beers...how can i complain?!!
and there's always next year!
