"So Long As There's Distance"
Left-hand, charcoal and pastels on 18"x24" medium-weight paper.
I think I'm caught up in another massive, somewhat derailed train of thought ....... not too many words this time around, I think I got a lot of things out of my system last time around. Though, therapy is going horrible (BECAUSE IT'S NOT HAPPENING!! urghh) and my right arm is still uncooperative, my mental state is far less tragic than it was when I was working on the pastel Badu piece. I'm figuring things out a little more with my left hand -- to the point where I don't have to think quite as hard to use it (there's less mental kicking and screaming, to say the least!).
I'm a little bit euphoric as of late..... On so many occasions I've felt myself melting away into timeless stupors. Could at least partly be contributed to a lack of control ... or a lack of interest in having any ........
Why more Bob Marley imagery?
"Them Belly Full (But We Hungry)" is a song that's been meditative for me in several instances. Specifically, when I was completely without any artistic outlet, it kind of put my mind in another place.
"Forget your sorrows and dance
Forget your troubles and dance
Forget your sickness and dance
Forget your weakness and dance"
Human beings! This life! Etc. Etc. Etc. I can't describe my frustration, but just the same, my appreciation is still (in the greatest way) beyond words.
