Drawing in.

This is what comes of reading “Drawing on the Right
Side of the Brain.”
No words for weeks.

One of the techniques the book explains
is quieting the left brain (the verbal, logical, detailed, critical one) by
presenting it with problems it refuses to solve, so it turns over control to the
right brain and goes away to sulk awhile.

I’ve been practicing, and so come away
mute and undecided, although my notebooks now hold sketches of leaves and pepper
shakers and other things that hold still when you stare at

While my left brain twiddles its
dendrites in metaphysically-baking sand, you can read about how many brain cells you lose in a day.
