This was drawn after a session of guided meditation that I stumbled into one day during the usual art club meeting on campus. We had a guest speaker of sorts who was a music major..and…well, it’s been a while and the details are fuzzy.
Essentially, though, she told us to imagine that our feet were rooted to the floor, growing vines and tendrils deep into the surface of the floor. Feel that. Be connected to that dirt under your feet. Got it? Now straighten and lengthen your spine until you’re standing tall, the tip of your head at its highest point; imagine a string running through the entirety of your body, from your rooted soles to the longest hair on your head, stretching to reach the stars above.
It was an awesome stretch. And a very cool visual image in my mind.
So here we are.
