While I was figuring out how to work with the different ink viscosities, and wrapping my mind around the process, I reached that feeling of timelessness and weightlessness that comes from creative action. I haven’t felt that for a long time. It was thrilling to get into the process and not worry about the outcome.
I love how creating a piece of work, how that in-the-moment-feeling spills over into everything else in my life. Yoga helps me with being in the moment, too, but not nearly as much as visual art and music do.
I feel like I’m coming out of a cave and coming back into living.
