empty glass


End of the evening, end of the weekend, and really the end of summer vacation, as the students come back to school tomorrow. I didn't realize I had this feeling of things receding, edging out of view, until I finished my drawing tonight. Now I am noticing that quiet moment at the very end of summer, when one wave has withdrawn for a moment and the next one is about to come sweeping in. After a pause, and a glass of iced coffee, the tumbling rush of fall activity is something to turn and face with excitement.

Funny how that moment happens at the beginning of the summer too, except in reverse -- when the hectic last couple of weeks of school are suddenly over and the summer washes it all away. Again, i love the simplicity of your drawing and your use of blank space.
