For the vertical to descend it departs as it returns.

So this is 1000. Thanks for your appreciation, encouragement involvement. So many people have cheered me on. Thank you!


I will continue to post here about the Thousand Sketches as the project continues to transform itself though I will not be adding sketches. You can stay in touch by subscribing to the feed for Thousand Sketches.

I will continue to blog & sketch on on my old blog: Psyberspace, please subscribe there and stay in touch as I continue to explore the psyche in Cyberspace, with sketches too of course.

#0929 Open to Joy
Larger Image.

Incantion, done. I have been putting this one off as it seemed too hard, but doing the in and out breath today, led to this. Not so much joy as being OPEN. Open is ok. Ok if you also know how to say no, or yes for that matter. The next one is its inverse, to flow with the breath.

#0747 Meaning

I am enjoying creating a second image from the first. Not the negative, but one for the exhale.

I tried making meaning in some way of the first image, but saturating it more, letting it be more than it was, but not altered, turned out to be the most fitting.


I have printed this pair (previous post) on Hahnemuhle Paper in A3 and they look stunning. Image size 212 mm square.

This and the next are in the incantation series:

4. (I trust) (my resources)
5. (I feel) (supported)
6. (I embrace) (this moment)
7. (I am free) (of the past)
8. (I make) (my meaning)
9. (I am open) (to joy)
10. (I am equal) (to this challenge)
11. (I am) (taking action)
12. (I return) (with strength)

From Eric Maisel’s book Ten Zen Seconds.

I use these! It works for me. Right now # 3 is (I am) (posting in my blog), and I want to get all the completed sketches up, and even more, today’s insights which are buzzing & will go with the next ten or so images!

The next image is part of the duo.
