I do not seek inspiration or wait around hoping it will find me.
Sometimes it just shows up, performing an aerial glomp.

When I was a little girl, I would spend an eternity spinning in tight circles in the backyard. I would watch the world turn into a near-solid blur and fall to the ground. It would take a while for the dizziness to fade and then I would start it all over again. Sometimes it was a contest against friends to see who could stay on their feet longer than the other.

Every once in a while, I turn in place and watch my vision blend into that almost forgotten blur. When I did this recently, I thought it would be fun to doodle, in paint, what it looks like. If I was outdoors, it would have shades of green.. but I was indoors.
