non verbal year

It's very interesting what has happened now that my #drawingaday project is complete. I'm verbal again.

Strange yes. I couldn't find a way to really talk about the drawings or what else I was doing in the studio while the project was happening. Now, I'm back.

Being involved in that project really changed how I thought and interacted with the world around me in a profound way. Logical thinking was repressed in a way that kept me from being productive at my other work. I was lost in a world that was all process, no thinking. Just now — three months after the drawing has ended and just a couple weeks after my journal entries on each drawing are complete — do I have room in my consciousness to really embrace other things.

This is actually frightening in a way. The ability to see exactly where I was was impossible. It was like an addiction.
