Slowly autumn. Water drains from the leaves. Shells split open and fall. Sap runs backwards into roots. Heat is conserved. And nature's vector plunges deeper inside to nest in the warm source.

Flow completes a circuit. One year ago today I began uploading drawings to this site. Sharing my drawings online happened as a natural extension of my 10 year old practice. The exposure this year has helped me recharge and intensify my drawings and the feedback I receive is tremendous. Like the endless river, may the drawings continue to flow.

Paths crossing. Dan dropped by unexpectedly just after this drawing was finished. My understanding of the drawing was unresolved when I showed it to him and he immediately read his own recent experiences in the imagery. No denying it was a good clear reading of his weekend trip to NYC. Why was this the drawing made on the day he spontaneously decided to visit? And would he have found his own thread so easily in another drawing? And how easily can anyone else see themselves in it?

Releasing selves. An identity from childhood swirls up. I see how I've defined myself through it. What is it that's not him?
