Did you ever have to make up your mind?

Today I've been working so hard on my marking, that
the painting I've done hasn't gone anywhere significant.
I've been saving this strange little drawing of my
brother for just such an occasion, because how he
looks, and how frenetic the drawing is -- that's how
I feel (minus the cigarette). This was done quite a while
ago.

School starts again tomorrow, and like a kid on Labour
Day I didn't sleep at all last night. Reading week has been
glorious, but busy, and I still feel like I'm running on a Möbius strip,
instead of making great headway. I'll have more painting
to show you tomorrow.

Have a getting-your-head-above-water day.
