Big skies are a Western constant, and my whole family loves stargazing and watching out for shooting stars during the Perseid Meteor shower every August. The lines from one of my favorite Pablo Neruda sonnets (XLVI) inspired this pattern:
“Of all the stars I admired, drenched
in various rivers and mists,
I chose only the one I love,
Since then I sleep with the night.”
So this pattern comes with a bit of poetry attached. Stars and poetry make a pleasing combination.
When I was nine a family friend gave me The Nothing Book. I carried it everywhere and this habit became permanent — I am never without my journal. My sketchbooks hold my brain: the galumphing to-do list, jottings, inspiration, places to visit, music to listen to, books to read, movies to see, endless doodles, potential painting titles, dreams and schemes, kids appointments, my calendar, and the rest of the beat.
