Maps

As we wallow around in midlife, raising kids, going to a job, worrying through our problems… how often do each of us take time to start something new just to experience the feeling of sinking back into the uncomfortable, familiar feeling of being bad at that something?

After work, it feels good to just relax into a chair and draw for a bit, making one decision after another, and seeing how it plays out as another mark is made. A drawing being steered towards completion, rather than executed, it’s course constantly being adjusted with each new mark. Making the drawing itself is the experience, not the end result. The resulting drawing is merely a map made along the way.
