|11:20 pm - I look pretty good in ink. . .|
Today, while giving a talk on Druidry at a Unitarian Universalist church in Reynoldsburg, I got quite the surprise:
I've never been line-arted before (is "line-arted" a word? Hell, it is now), and certainly never in under 30 minutes!
Damn good job, too, I have to say. I don't look that good in real life!
(for those wondering, yeah, my hair just started brushing the tops of my shoulders in the shower this morning. . .)
Current Location: Southeast of Disorder
Current Mood: chipper
Current Music: "Nautical Wheelers", -JB
Holy *shit*!!! That looks like my ex!
Don't scare me like that ever again! (Seriously, I jumped out of my chair. The weird thing is that you don't look like him at all in real life. Must be the hair. And the goatee. Or something. That's freaky.)
By the way, it's "sketched". :-) And incidentally, you have been sketched before but I don't think I ever showed you the drawings. I think they were in the sketchbook that got stolen, along with the rest of my purse.
I think I prefer "line-arted." It's a sexier word than "sketched," really.
And I wonder why I couldn't cut a beginning drawing class. . .
hehe. Maybe I am your ex, and I've just been fooling you for years! Years!
Nah, his hair's almost all grey now (which is also kinda freaky in an entirely different way- I don't understand how he got so old while I'm still so young). Plus, you'd have to put on a fair bit of weight to achieve that middle-age spread he's got going.
Somehow, I'm not surprised that you'd prefer "line-arted". That fact that line art is actually something quite different from that drawing makes it even more apropos. :-D
skectched isway sexier than line-arted. ;)
Inquiring minds want to know... are you becoming a damned dirty hippie? Does it help keep you warm in the Ohio frigidness? I'm sounding like I'm thinking pejorative thoughts about your hair but I'm not. It looks nice.
"Tree-hugging dirt-worshipper" is the title, I believe. But I shower daily (including washing my hair) and even understand concepts like avoiding patchouli-scented items.
It does, though, have a very obvious affect on warmth. I haven't worn a hat all winter, and I haven't felt the need to. Of course, today it's 60° here, so it's somewhat bothersome right now.
One day last autumn I was driving home and I realized, "Oh, that's what it feels like to have the wind 'blow through your hair!'"
I am reaching a point where I may get to "no return": I might have to continue to grow it until I can chop it all off and donate it. It's a nice fantasy, but I don't know how it will go.
Honestly, I think I just hate having hair, and my hatred has manifested into a response of "Fine, just keep fucking growing, you damn, dirty follicles! I'll get you in the end!"
This, of course, means that I must strike when the hair is still incapable of strangling me in my sleep. . . Sun Tzu would insist that I strike while my enemy is unable to fight back to neutralize the potential threat with minimal casualties.
This, of course, means that I must strike when the hair is still incapable of strangling me in my sleep. . .
Um... yeah. I think you should avoid sleeping with anything vaguely tentacular... even if it is still attached to you. *shudder*

LOL - long hair and beard type facial hair. It's been way too long since I saw you in person. ;)
Cool drawing. I see your spirit in there.
Since. . . Wellspring? or Summerland? I didn't actually see anyone at Summerland, now that I think about it: I was in the damn kitchen the entire time.
Which, honestly, I loved.
But yeah, it feels like it's been a very long time. No haircuts since Greece, I think!
At least keep it until I see you in a few weeks.... we can compare hair follicles!
Ooh! I shall! (speaking of, I need to clean the attic for kittens!)
Kit-tahs! I am trying to get everything done so we can leave this month instead of next, I hope that is ok. I just need to get out of here. I need the mountains and the ocean again. I need the temples, the shrines, and the rice. Most of all I miss the green.
Nice sketch! Any chance it was Betty who did it? I don't even know if she's still at the UUCE; it's been a long time since I was a member there, but she was quite an artist.
It certainly was! I got her to sign it and everything :) I need to get her a copy. She was amazingly lovely and a little embarrassed that I liked it so much :)
Oh! If/when you're back there and see her, PLEASE tell her that I think of her often and hope she's doing well. And if you feel comfortable, give her a hug from me?

Very nice :)
I don't think I could afford the conditioner it takes to grow a mane :)
I'm looking forward to chopping it off, actually.
That looks like a picture I saw down at the post office. Hmm...
