I exhibit withdrawal symptoms when away from New York and the City's--and daily life's--incessant hum. Unscheduled moments, uncertainty, freedom from thoughts, quiet, nothingness are frightening states of being for the simple reason of being unaccostomed to them. But travel (and the silver lining in being temporarily immobilized from a foot injury) allowed me to discover The Sketchbook Project and escape not just a harried life, but diagnosed severe anxiety and depression, by slowing down, being in the moment recording experiences in my mind's eye for drawing/transcription later. "Take 10" is the result of a process that continues not simply to escape, but to reclaim my life, 10 minutes at a time.
