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.
