A small cup is placed in front of me.
The dark brown coffee in it creates waves on the surface as the desk shakes finely,
and it reminds me of a deep blue lake I have seen somewhere.
I draw the sky while listening to the sounds of birds singing and wind blowing and surrounding a forest.
The purposeless drawing leads me in a direction separate from my consciousness.
I grab a brush and start drawing on a rustling paper.
Brown coffee, waves, lake, birds and sky…
Then I don't know exactly what I was trying to draw.
But I feel a comfortable rhythm in the things I draw without calling it art.
