5 min sketch

Thanks to Janet, from her blog and my virtual 5 min travels there, I soaked up the inspiration to give myself another 5 min to do a quick sketch. It’s inspired by the Shaman divination card I pulled for this 5 min drawing. What happens if you live in 5 min increments?

Also, I had more time, and I spent it on a call with the poet David Whyte. I’m keeping my inspiration alive in the shadows of others. This has been a long time strategy. I hope to offer support as I have received it. I hope my blog post inspires you to consider how meditatively or intentionally you can live in 5 minutes. I hope one day my work will achieve a worthiness for the attention it needs.

I’m not in the business of putting out polished work right now, but one day I would certainly like to be able to do that. In the meantime, I’m keeping that pilot light lit 🔥

I’ll be visiting everyone in those same 5 min increments, as I don’t have a lot of “free” time, even with the world-wide lockdowns. I just have all the stuff I’ve been procrastinating, waiting for me to give it my 5 minutes. So much of my time is given freely, as is yours….

Thank you 🙏🏽

  2. I love it! And I completely get it, Ka! I would have thought that I would feel like I have more time…but I don’t! The thing is there are so many projects that I flit from one to the other and the next thing I know it is 8pm and I have not eaten dinner yet!
    Stay well my friend…and enjoy all of those 5 minute increments 😉

      1. Thank you! While there might be something innate about my drawing, I’d like to think it was cultivation of a skill. This is just one of many drawings. But I haven’t been very busy doing this throughout my years like I would have liked.

  3. I love the idea of five minute increments. A sketch or anything done in five minutes doesn’t have to be anything but what it is. Your sketch reminds me of Creb from Clan of the Cave Bear., though I suppose this is an archetypal shaman.

      1. Clan of the Cave Bear is the first of Jean Auel’s series. They made a movie, too. Of course books always go deeper. The series has been a big part of my life, especially since I’m such a slow reader. 🙂
