Robert Frost was lucky that he only had two roads diverging in his yellow wood - I woke up early yesterday and had this picture half-formed in my head of detours along my artsy journey - and thought that identifying and drawing them might keep me on the 'true road', whatever that may be. So off I went on that purple path about halfway up, and spent too long doodling and picking colours and words - it seemed like a good idea at 5 in the morning! Some of the paths are necessary, and others are just too good -and fun- to resist, within reason (don't get too far along that Internet Trail!) but Envy Alley and Smug Saunter - no-no-no. Do other arty types have the same distractions? Some people seem to have such a clear idea of where they're headed, and exactly what it is they want to do!
It just occurred to me that I need to define what that rising sun bit IS ... a goal! Aha!
