Brilliant,vivid,wonderful,material for another sequence? maybe? not so silent but with your own reading of your poems,notes,something??
Are you insomniac too?
And do you use,how is it called,Asemic writing to make your drawings? I saw it somewhere but can not remember where,there it goes my youthful persona,of with high fever again! Kind regards,Aleksandra

Aleksandra, I love your youthful, feverish comment. I don’t know the answer, but drawing feels like writing and writing feels like drawing, and the little marks I make on paper feel like words whether they’re made of letters or not. As for another sequence, I guess time will tell. I do have “ideas.”

I agree with Aleks here, your face looks feverish, the eyes of an insomniac, the torture of wakefulness, but when you write about it, you sound so calm. Amazing.

William Michaelian said...

Or strange. Now, almost a day later, the drawing looks like some kind of map. And wake does have other meanings....

Haunting image.

Thanks, Momo Luna. I think I was haunted when I made it. I probably still am.
