Knowing it would take six hours from Newark to Seattle, I packed my ipod and Bose Headphones for the flight.
In my own world of music, with the drone of the engines as background, it was easy to slip into a state of meditative drawing. The first pencil sketch progressed along a similar path to the journal orb series I drew several years ago. It then veered off in another direction reminiscent of Salvador Dali.
On the return trip I was treated to a view of mountain peaks poking through a layer of clouds as we flew from late afternoon light toward sunsets and darkness. The cloud cover opened to reveal snow-covered crop circles before the light of day was left behind in the west.
As we flew into darkness and I switched on my overhead light I returned to pencil squiggle meditations.
