map making

I had a very unique drive into work yesterday. A trip I make 5 days a week, same way every day. I saw the roadway as a line drawing, lines to the left, curving to the right. I saw shadows from the tree's and the grids on buildings. It fascinated me. I thought about this drive and how it ends up becoming a loop as I take the same route home. One big abstract circle. I wanted to draw it. I wanted to connect the outside to the inside, the map of my daily drive to the map of my life. I wondered how I could change the direction of my future, which I very much want to do, if I keep driving in circles. The grids on buildings were no different from the grids of desks inside the building. Very contained, offering little creativity. My thoughts for a Thursday.

  1. I came across this quote by the artist, Camille Pissarro, the other day,"Blessed are they who see beautiful things in humble places, where others see nothing." You are certainly blessed with this sight, my dear.
