gardens, botany, sea birds, the magical world of drawing

I am always amazed at the power of drawing. How it can refresh the mind, slow myself down and feel relaxed and curious at the same time.  My yoga instructor talks about giving effort and relaxation while holding a pose.  That seems very difficult in yoga and it will be something I forever work on, but when it comes to drawing, that is what I do.  That is when drawing feels best.  I love to draw - even when it's not a great image that is happening.  But the process of mark making is what I love and am glad I have time to go there.
