29. Absorption

4 x 6. Paper, Sharpies

29 in the It's Only a Book project in which I'm deconstructing my 2003 book, Grace: A Memoir, and turning it into art. Sent to Amy in Washington D. C.

I love it and I love you for being bold and fabulous in this world of blah, blah, blah. Some may view absorption as the state or process of being absorbed-a taking away, less of, or loss. Your words reminded me of the rare times of knowing wonder when we step into it. Absorption is transforming-a process of becoming more of our authentic self.

Yes. Watching an artist at work or a baby learning to eat peas from the highchair tray -- they show how silly is the notion of us being less-than. It's more like while absorbed we're I-squared -- Yeah, what you said: more of our authentic self. I'm happy that you like it!
