scrawls and sketches
…just as soon as someone you’re related to opens up their pool to be used like it should.
It took me a while to force myself to open up my sketchbook and paints amidst the noise and flutter of a casual party where a body is expected to socialize. Good thing everyone stayed mostly by the pool, so I was free to sketch as I pleased without much interruption, although I think it gave everyone the impression that I was aloof and/or showing off, which wasn’t my intent. I did chat with people, though, but I’m not much in crowds, especially ones full of half-naked, freakishly extroverted people.
