Use your non dominant hand. Embrace the awkwardness and let go!
FOLX, it seems I’m having technical difficulties tonight no matter whichway I turn. Damn glitches. It’s debatable whether I’ll be able to complete this post, but I’m determined to log a post for this day come hell or high water. I’m sick of the trouble with not only this post, but with something I wanted to link to, AND with my HBO series The Leftovers where I wanted to watch Season Two and no! just…the glitches! Erk.
It’s interesting. The Leftovers is just slightly unnerving anyway–very subtly so–and there’s this character who periodically slays goats. I was watching it yesterday and it hit me how many GOATS I had seen in images, stories, and videos all throughout the day. Is this a sign? I tentatively googled–if that’s even a thing–and saw, much to my relief, that goats are not necessarily an indication of Lucifer or pure evil or anything which I was fearing just a titch. So the symbolism around goats is mixed, varied, and mostly a matter of opinion. I will research more fully later. But for now…
this nondominant hand assignment MUST BE POSTED before midnight. Here it is and it’s weird and incomplete. Wouldn’t you know it: that befits the topic. Awkwardness, imperfection, exploration, letting go of outcomes. I must confess that I’ve explored other-handedness in the past quite a bit. Mostly regarding writing. In fact, one of my all-time bestest gurus, the incomparable Lucia Capacchione, introduced me to this concept with her book The Power of Your Other Hand. Highly recommend and a subject for another post.
A right-hander myself, I drew a bit today with my left hand.
I have more to say about this, but you know DAMN GOATS!
Your left hand lines look more wirey than like the threads lines of your right hand. No conclusions… Just sayin… 💓
