When I saw the prompt "Teacher" for this week's Illustration Friday, I thought of all the wonderful teachers I've had over the years. How could I choose?
Plus, once again, I knew I really didn't have time to do a "proper" illustration. That seems to be the theme lately - always playing catch up. When life gets too busy, as others I'm sure can relate, I start to lose some of myself. Maybe without even realizing it until some little thing or things gets me to notice.
Like missing an opportunity for a fun social time. Like needing a few work clothes, but losing interest in shopping for them. Like a vague feeling of detachment. Like realizing I've become somewhat aloof.
I looked at my work desk. It's functional. It's without personality. It's dusty. I hastily drew it, not necessarily because I like it. I don't like the drawing either, for that matter. It's without personality.
This has been a good teacher.
