As I was listening to this wonderful Creative Thursday podcast, it occurred to me that although I oftentimes post about what inspires me and intimate that the source of inspiration will probably pop up in some future pieces, rarely do I write what each particular piece was inspired by. Honestly, sometimes I am not quite certain what has lead me to sketch what I have, but I do have a vague idea most of the time. For example, while I was studying for the bar exam (I know, I need to stop talking about it already), my meditation practice dwindled. When I did meditate, it had a profound effect on me, but it definitely played second fiddle to studying. Now that I have returned to a somewhat normal schedule, I am returning to a consistent meditation practice. Like painting, running, asana and everything else in life that has molded me into who I am (and am still becoming), meditation takes practice. Now that I have returned to my seat, my initial goal is to meditate on 21 consecutive days. Consistency takes practice too. I will let you know how it goes, but for now, the sketch that was inspired by the return to my seat.
