Sketch #1

It's been a while since I put my pen to a paper to draw or sketch. I've been so focused on writing, mixing and matching words that I let my love for drawing wane like a candle left out in the sun. I forgot how therapeutic drawing is. I would usually say "Don't let your … Continue reading Sketch #1
