Let's just skip the "Why I haven't been blogging" and get to the good stuff.
This semester I have an art class in school. It's fun, I like to draw. And of course we get homework. Our homework this week is to fill two pages of images of things we find inspiring.
Inspiring is difficult for me. Let's just say that if The Fountainhead was made into a movie, a picture of Howard Roark would have been put front and center of my homework. Not necessarily as something that inspires me, but more as a role model. Though proclaiming that Roark is my role model is probably an oxymoron.
Anyway, two things did immediately come to mind, Myst and Ka. But those only take up so much room. I've got to figure out something else.
So, after digging into my mind, various sketchbooks and the internet, I finally found some things that I could use. That doesn't mean I didn't get desperate.
We also have to fill a page with writings that inspire us. So my page will probably be filled with the lyrics to Freewill, a couple of odd quotes that smart-alacs like me appreciate, and one of the knock-off poems from the game Portal.
Not in cruelty
Not it wrath
The Reaper came today.
An Angel visited
This gray path
And took the cube away.
And that's about it. Um... here, a moment of zen.
