hand written note abut drawing

How my "drawings" are misunderstood by everybody: when somebody does something crassly different people know that they have to "change channel" [or] "outlook," [and] renounce preconceived ideas to get it. The fact they have another meaning in each of the (minimum) 4 positions [orientations] is crucial.

hand written note abut drawing

The fact that they are done with me being in a certain condition of awareness - that "paranormal" help is involved: they are strange, intriguing, interesting events. Food for thought & wonder, meditation, investigation. They intrigue & trouble me more than I can say.
