Tonight as I was trying to settle down and meditate
I remembered the story of how my body
and mind converged in drawing for the first time:
It was 1989, I had finished my MFA degree and was teaching
Computer Art but I had not stopped studying.
I was struggling with a drawing class,
not with my technique, but with 'getting it'.
I could never reconcile the marks on paper
with the results I desired from making art.
As usual, I had too many ideas.
My drawings looked interesting
but why did they feel lifeless?
I could always find a note but never a whole chord.
Where was the resonance?
