Drinking and Drawing

Me. I more or less like drawing, it just puts me in a rather negative state of mind. But that’s only when I use the conventional paper and pencil. Using the back of my notebook was an anti-anxiety-caused-by-perfectionism method. Especially since there were no erasers allowed. And definitely, nobody’s born an artist (unless it’s performing arts), so practice helps.

And I guess, you’re less likely to be a wanderer when you’re on the road to Rome. It’s always the conventional, four-horse-driven chariot with unchipped wheels taking you wherever everyone else ought to be going. Your to do list will be full until you pass away.

Which is as it should be, but every once in a while it’s not a bad idea to put Today: nothing .

Where did the trunk go in those trees.
Use a pen or just never, ever lift the pencil. Do your best not to cry. Do your best. Try your hardest not to imagine how people will react if they see it. Convince yourself nobody will ever see it. Make sure no one ever sees it.
