#bedfellows with #BenedictCumberbatch as he reads #Casanova for me while I draw.
His consuming voice and his impressions of various characters made me smile through the wee hours as I took up the pen for this project.
Sometimes you find the most surprising of friends in the #LoveofLiterature

I call this guy the #fruithead and he symbolises for me the artist's disorientation as he lets new ideas take shape inside of him. What we often forget as human beings is that nature is not separate from us. As much as we alienate ourselves from it, so many of the patterns formed in our head and later concretised as ideas are inevitably nature's own productions.
Another aspect of symbolism behind the fruithead is that every artist has got to carry the weight of his idea until it becomes ripe and falls to the ground on its own. .
Writers like me who faced Writer’s bloc one too many times can relate to this. The idea is all there...inside the head, but it's just not dropping in the form of ink...
To create something new is to be patient, to be eternally patient if need be, for only in such a creation lies the seed that carries forth the essence of your generation on to the next. .

A lot of times in the creative field, the writer or the artist comes across the feeling: man, this guy totally stole my idea! .

The more times that happens (and after you get over your moral outrage at how Alfonso Cuaron stole your plot for Gravity by reading it on your twitter) the more you realise how amazingly synchronised the humans minds are on a global scale. And how, as a creator you are given the great gift of witnessing that. Suddenly, the world that had seemed so large and insurmountable becomes so small and ephemeral as an idea in your brain, occurring now, here and elsewhere. We are all being born, right here, right now, along with billions of others on this planet.
We are all arriving simultaneously
at ideas and understandings that didn't exist before; ideas that are nervously being doled out in little mischievous packages of language and art by creators like me. .

And yes, though it pinches a little that we weren't there first, when someone brings that idea that we have had too, into material manifestation, it still feels pretty great to look at. That thing that once existed only in your head...yes that one, d idea u thought was unrealistic or that other one you were afraid ppl were going to laugh at if you express...that thing that wasn't even a thing...a passing notion...an irregular whim, an idea...It's real now. It exists. And you knew it was possible all along. That's the universe talking back to you. That's the sign that you're not #stupid or #unrealistic or #illogical or any of those things that ppl say you are. .
.

It's a reminder that #YouMatter and what's inside your head is #reality too. It's a reminder that as long as you are being forced to move in time, the inside and outside are just the same.

The deconstruction of the rose:
All these ideas I have
They're like roses
Their multi-fragrances
All of the same essence
It is only I who doesn't know that
When it's so painfully obvious to others
It is only I who doesn't know that
No matter what I do
The fragrance that issues
Is still that of a rose
And it's brilliant

One of the happier aspects of gardening is coming across something that represented an intimate connection you always felt within you. .
Like the flavour of basil 🌿
Can you explain it? You just feel it. That subtle ephemeral presence in your mouth that somehow always makes u stop, look at the distance and go...hmmm. The thinking matter I call it and this is how it looks like in its core. .
Look at those tiny flowers, its surreptitious way of spreading its flavour. What mysterious tiny bugs is it attracting to take its tales to wonderland?
Isn't that the place that plants live in? Going nowhere, they just know that the songs they speak in the form of flowers are reaching their loved ones and turning the whole land green. .

When I think of the incredible productions of nature, it is the conservation of space that strikes me the most extraordinary. .
It is that property of it to make use of everything it has that is evident to us in its properties like self-symmetry and it's ability to form complex systems.
.
It's #selfsymmetry is not unlike the human urge to find ourselves within something bigger or that something-bigger including within itself the provision for us to do so. .
As we go after any variables that could fit into the descriptions of bigger, better, vaster and greater, nature's going in the opposite direction, smaller, complex, amazing, astounding. A world within world within world...a never ending mystery, forever beyond our grasp as we are just not travelling in the same direction! .

Potential is a feeling
The most unique
Hence seemingly magical
Empirical even
In that it is nearly manifest
But not quite

In numbers it is probability
What it manifests as is hope
Potential is a feeling
It is infinity felt
It is boundlessness
That is always around

People ask me what style this is that they have seen in so many of my drawings and doodles. Well it's not anybody's so I didn't have a name for it. But since I've begun to post these lil pieces on insta, I took to adding the tag "self evolving" to my artwork and I think it describes the style just right.
I don't consciously think about what I'm making. I just follow the style and as it evolves, different expressions are found within it that I try to showcase whenever I can. .

I enjoyed our journey
I felt the sun too
I felt it's yellow warmth
Throw spots behind my eyes
I moved carelessly with day
And in night I slept with you
So long my bloom
I bid you goodbye

And these thousand hands
Hide gently my secret
Until I'm ready to spill out
Into the universe
A memory's worth of dreams

PS: CNN doesn't credit this beautiful photograph with the name of the photographer. How sad is that.. It is easily one of my favourites, the photograph, and after a recent trip to the zoo, the animal.
The article edited by Jon D. Sutter talks about the giraffe now being listed under those animals at the risk of extinction with what I thought was an alarmingly low population of just under a 100,000.
The article also talks about a sixth great extinction event on the planet in the next 20 years if humans 'don't change their ways' etc. I dunno...all I could think of was that that photographer should've been credited for his work.
Maybe that's what humans should change about themselves. Give credit where credit is due...

Lovely card from @shanti.u to remember our first meeting!
She's a wonderful #artist, a budding photographer and a sweet soul too hard to capture in words.
Thank you for this dear 🙂
