Pelagia Noctiluca

Saturday, October 16

There is a point here, I swear

Day 01 → Something you hate about yourself.
Day 02 → Something you love about yourself.

Ok. See? Right there ---------->

No? Really? Shit.

How to make these brush strokes into words?

Day 1 - Obsession: more than just a pervy purfume ad, it is my brian. Whoa, I said Brian, what does that mean? Do I even know a Brian? Never mind. Brain. Yes. See? It itches.

What ABOUT that thing I said at work? Did I offend? Was I misunderstood? Do I care? Am I a bitch for not caring? Dude, who cares? Well, not me obviously. Really? Really. Why is that person interrupting my conversation? Who am I talking to?

Day 2 - Obsession: Just shut up and paint something! Ahh, look at that color. It likes that other one, look, they're dancing. Ooh, make a line there, and here, and whoosh it around up there. Something is scratching at the door. Scritch Scratch, oh look, just a monster hiding in the weeds. Prickly brush, sprouting flowers bearing birds. Calmer, quieter, nestling in my body's center. Whoa, it's been four hours, I love this shit.

I love your brain. Even when I'm trying to talk you out of the bad obsession.

This is a great project, BTW. Can't wait to read more!

I love yours as well. There have been lots of people around lately, so I haven't had as much time to call. However, tomorrow is Sunday, and all to do is cook and clean to make my house smell good and fall-like.

On looking at this post again I noticed that your drawing when viewed out of the periphery appears to me as an image taken from a microscope.

Ooo, I like that. A microscopic view of my brain!
