Best Minds

A Day Without Sound , charcoal on paper

Last Sunday was BEST MINDS at Sara's apartment (you can read about it on her blog: here)
and I made this piece- a drawing?!
It felt really good and organic to draw again. I have been having so much difficulty communicating lately. All day at work I am counting seconds and making tally marks and prompting non-verbal children to form approximations of words. By the time I get home I am completely incapable of conversation. And it has been so difficult to even think about creating, let alone MAKING SOMETHING. Best Minds was the perfect push that I needed. I really love that Sara got so many good people together to talk and share and listen.
