There is no conception

There is no conception, only spontaneity. A game is played. One of obsession with line, detail, the potential for wrong turns and the anxiety of error. Lost in the wilderness, riding the anxious wave of intuitive creative inspiration. For an all too brief moment, when all's going well, there is no time, no space, no place not even a self.
