This graphite drawing symbolizes quiet reflection; those rare moments where we are all alone (not lonely) and get to be completely sincere with ourselves. They say pains of the mind exceed those of the body, and so joys of the mind exceed those of the body. Physical pain is usually a brief and fleeting encounter. Having it end does feel great, but it's not quite as relieving as a lengthy, deep amount of stress being lifted off your shoulders. There are so many worldly things that take up our attention and bring anxiety: I don't make enough money; My job is killing my soul; I don't understand what is happening in Lost right now; People don't get my humour and think I'm evil etc. But to have that quiet moment of mental relaxation and bliss; that is what I was aiming to illustrate.
