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!

Later

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.

A more satisfying version of the hills, of their power.

As if to return with strength I added the vertical, but I keep going.

So here is another return. Return to earth, hills, New Zealand, lines, incantations, and I am trusting, strength.

Fittingly the last of the incantations is (I return) (with strength) So I thought of the first in the series. here is a return to that. It lacked the strength. I keep going.

This is another in the Incantation series. 11. (I am) (taking action)

I thought of green for go, but it is red for action in my world, as the next one shows. This is the “inverse”.

Equal to the Challenge

#0962 Equal to the Challenge
Larger Image.

One of the incantations from Eric Maisel’s book, I am equal to the challenge. I had the image of a needle, but finished up with a line. That line is equal to all the black. The next one, like all in this series, is the inverse. Which I arrived at by flipping it over removing the white line and putting in a black line.

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.

Meaning

#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.

Later:

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:

1. (I am completely) (stopping)
2. (I expect) (nothing)
3. (I am) (doing my work)
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.

This is not a true negative. It just feels like one to me.

Another in the Ten Zen Seconds series, (I am free) (from the past).

The idea of making a negative image continues… next entry.

Incantation: “I am supported” and the image that emerged was one I think of as a web, I live in a web. I am linked.

As with some others in this series I have made a negative:

Trust Resources

Saturday, May 19th, 2007

This is one in the incantation series. One, but there are two images. I have taken to doing these in digital pencil, and then making a negative. It echoes the idea of an in breath and an out breath.

In the comments below Jan asked how it might look in negative. Here it is – with a little sepia thrown in. Better if you ask me. Thanks Jan.
