10.5.2014 Philip Guston is quoted as saying, "I am a night painter, so when I come into the studio the next morning the delirium is over."

That Monday when I finally got out of bed, still committed to the project, reviewing drawings from the night before, sipping coffee, knowing this was the last day, recalling my blissfully open state of mind, the ease of allowing, new in the light of day, I sat and resumed dissolving pastels over maps, my work still not complete, the noises of the city waking up, a few stars left in my head, and hoping the magic survived, hoping to add one more layer of resonance, one more day of practice, one more insight to my transformation.
