Rage Reduction

30 Jan

Last night I ripped through a dozen sheets of drawing paper, scribbling on them with pastels. I didn’t try to do anything but play, like a kid would play with colors and shapes. I disengaged my mind and just let myself see what would come out.

This morning I awoke with chalk stains on my hands and sweater sleeves, which I found oddly satisfying. The pastels were in a heap and the pages strewn around the room.

I highly recommend this.

    Also, I’m seriously considering drawing on my house. It’s a fairly flat stuccoed surface painted white. I might want to repaint some of it first.

    Of course it will wear off. But art is not eternal.
