Memory is such a tricky business. At this time of year I like to look backwards as well as forwards. "Liminal" was the title of my last post, and I am still there, in liminality. Doorways are the perfect illustration of that--they are transitional places.
I made this drawing 9 years ago today and just saw it again. I have no memory of what I was thinking when I drew it--it's probably a drawing from a photograph of an actual doorway somewhere.
Only after I'd pasted it in here did I notice the small question mark at the bottom of the drawing. What did I mean by that?
“The present changes the past. Looking back you do not find what you left behind.”
