But I can’t draw. You’ve all seen the drawings little children do for their mommies – the ones that cause all mommies everywhere to say, “Now, (child’s name here), tell me about this picture.” That’s what my artwork looks like, except that nobody will hang mine on the refrigerator.
It’s not as if I haven’t tried. When I was 12, I took an art class with people of varying ages. We were to draw a bowl of fruit with some kind of charcoal. When the instructor saw mine, he kindly suggested I change classes – to ceramics. All I had to do there was paint objects like ashtrays and wait for somebody else to “fire” them.
Even photography seems to be outside my abilities. How many pictures of my fingers do I need? Or pictures of people so far away no one can discern who they are?
So I guess I’ll have to be content with describing a sunset instead of drawing it, making music, and enjoying my teenagers. I’ll save the space on the front of my refrigerator for my grandchildren.
