I started sketching about a year ago.

I draw from life.

This has two meanings, of course.
I draw, or sketch, from reality,
as opposed to from my imagination.
And then, I draw, or pull the life around me
through me, and then try to let it out
on paper.

Just trying to do this completely restores me.

So every day I go somewhere
in downtown Palo Alto
and draw a bit.
Sometimes it turns out ok.

I usually go to the University Coffee Café
on University Avenue.
The place works.

And the people, mostly, sit still.

I'll explain more, later,
