Today I worked on the second map again. I have much more work to do on this one as I travel across the plains and valleys of the psyche, the emotional psyche, here represented by the abdomen. the light and shadow patters are slow to emerge, and require much investment, and rightly so. why should the description of an emotional situation not require the author to live it not just every day, but also during the process of description? So this is where I am at, fumbling in and out of peaks and valleys, over and over, watching for a shape that speaks of joy or pain or soul and then coaching it into a visual manifestation.
Give me a minute please to boil myself down to a single descriptive sentence...I am still working on this!
