We all have our own set of neuroses. At least, I do.
Lately, mine have been sedated by healthy replacements to old habits and thinking patterns.
Less time in an anxious state has opened my mind to somewhat creative/curious/random thoughts…
* How long would it take for Mother Nature to just reclaim roads and buildings if people stopped trimming bushes and mowing lawns?
* What are places like in the middle of the night when no one is there- the scary and deteriorated old building we pass on Highway 40… the “Pirates of the Caribbean” ride at Disney World- what if you just woke up in one of those places?
* What are morning routines like for other people? Do they make coffee/tea and relax a bit before showering? Do they take time to stretch? Do they sleep until the last possible second and then furiously put themselves together?
Perhaps I was thinking about these kind of arbitrary thoughts when I created the drawing I am going to share…? I was twelve years old when I drew the image, during the summer break before I began eighth grade. I had just withdrawn myself from the “gifted” program and was about to start back in with the “regular” population- something I was thrilled to do after being segregated (albeit with some amazing individuals) since the third grade.
This drawing is seventeen years old…
I do not think the woman in the picture is me… she has dark hair and green eyes. The other “faces” around her could be other personalities/moods/people…?
Whatever I was trying to express, it is intriguing for me to analyze my history with creativity.
Also- What random thoughts/concepts do you ponder?
