I came across an illustration in a magazine that really intrigued me.
The illustrator’s name is Edel Rodriguez (edelrodriguez.com). He’s a native of Cuba and has done illustrations for countless magazines, and has even done stamp designs for the US Postal Service.
I think this is kind of how I feel often. I’m never quite free. Whether I’m tied to the illness or to other things in life, I sometimes allow it to hold me back. This illustration just captures this state of self.
For me, I’m constantly going through my own thoughts. as if I’m reworking my ‘yarn-ful’ of thoughts into something else. The thread just keeps coming. Sometimes, that inclination to constantly be introspective leads to a mess.
I guess I like to think. I know when I’m depressed when this swirl of papers and thoughts just come to a halt.
Oh, to have my mind be a place of growth and some direction….and calmness. Maybe this is what I’m striving toward.
I just really love these illustrations. They all make me think!
