Dropping Down

 

This moment, right here,

is where i need to be.

Drinking in the lines & curves of the NOW life

which is SO unassuming,

SO simple,

perhaps not even note-worthy.

And yet…in drawing,

i find worth and value

in just BEING.

BEING still,

being focused on here

and not on there.

This dropping-down

of the straw-pen

into the milkshake of my life

is like placing the needle

of the record-player

onto the vinyl disc:

i begin to hear the music…

softly at first…

then stronger as the needle traces the lines

round and round my life

AS IT IS

right now,

in THIS moment.

    What a beautiful way to document the “specialness” of an ordinary day. Thank you for sharing this; you inspire me to try to document my regular days and find the joy or peace in them. So glad I decided to follow your beautiful blog.

    I have a memoir journal I’ve been working on just getting down little things like school dance memories and tricycle riding and each time I sit to write how often the feeling to draw gets in the way. I really believe at times that writing clears the way to free drawing expression. The cat has no problem living in the moment that’s for sure.

      Yes, Mary…I’ve often thought I would love to live a cat’s life! Except that she doesn’t draw…and I do love to draw. 🙂
