I hope everyone can tell what the image is supposed to be in this one.  Sometimes I’m not sure the intention is clear enough.

Can you tell what it is?

Week 2 – Betty Jarra

Flying lesson 2)
Keep on walking
 

 

  Flying lesson 2 was almost cancelled.
It would have been a disaster!
Everything took longer than expected today, but I have time so there’s no stress. Helping my daughter, helping my mother, I slowly realise that it will have to be an evening walk. But then suddenly it’s evening already!
It’s late and I mix up the student me and the teacher me, so out of the blue the teacher me decides that it won’t work because the student me will not want to walk anyway.
Simply too much damn thinking!

 What happens after all that thinking is actually a bit surprising.
Realising that, already at my 2:nd lesson, I will simply cancel it could make me angry at myself or even happy, but instead, I become sad.
It feels really crappy that my body will not be receiving this gift, already on day two! So I quickly decide to do what feels good in the moment.
I walk!

  Exactly the walk I had planned, I even walk a bit further because I’m walking a bit too fast to make it last long enough.
My arms swinging, cross-training (or whatever it’s called) is good for the brain, increasing the contact between my left and right.
Right away I feel amazingly good because I actually did what I had decided to do.
Damn, I still keep on making it harder for myself than it has to be.

  Today it wasn’t receiving the gift that was the difficult part, instead it was giving it to myself. It’s not easy to understand the complexity of a learning procedure. Luckily I have a good teacher after all.
On the tram home (avoiding a boring bridge again), it felt very special, I had managed to give myself something good. I’m not all that good at giving to myself so it probably doesn’t happen often enough.

  It’s very moving, being worthy of a gift.

I thought maybe the twingeekz project would be a good place to kick-start a small comic idea I had based on a ghost story I made up for Halloween 2010.  I beefed up the black with photoshop and because my handwriting is awful I went ahead and edited that too.

Week 2 – Brian Weeks

I was inspired by a thorough re-read of Bill Pelon’s Graphic Poetry archives this week.

The photo was taken in Wellfleet, MA a couple of years ago – it was late in the season, probably late October/early November. The sunset colors were so beautiful that I had to pull over and capture them.

As for the words, this was originally written as a kind of plea to my then 13-year-old sister to make a change in the people that were influencing her at the time. I had one of those magnetic poetry sets that I think everyone had back then, and I was just messing around with it, listening to music. All of a sudden, I had the skeleton of this piece…

I’ve just uploaded fifteen years or so of archived files onto my computer and have been sorting through them – partly for inspiration, to inject something I completed in the past with a new life, reimagined for the future.
