The first week of January has arrived… the year streches out before us…
what to make of it?
Resolve: I will attend my weekly drawing group when possible and work harder at drawing, somehow without making “work” of it. I will set this time aside as a refuge and a reflection on the very small history of me. I will aim to resist the tempatation to sneak out and shoot the breeze with my drawing buddies instead of work on my sketches. I will replay in my memory that urgent advice of so long ago,
“draw every day!”
And so when overwhemed, overworked, tired, or confused I will follow the tangle of meandering lines back to the heart of the matter and reset my pathway along that fluid stroke yet again.

More to come in this New Year!
