South Side

"Whatever amuses, serves to kill time, to lull the faculties, and to banish reflection.
Whatever entertains, usually awakens the understanding or gratifies the fancy.
Whatever diverts, is lively in its nature, and sometimes tumultuous in its effects."
- George Crabbe

As I looked at this drawing, I toyed with the idea of color. It was a fork in the creative road. To use a blackjack analogy, should I hit or stand? With a poem, you can keep a version, play around with words, go back. You can fast forward backward. With photoshop, you can Revert. But here, there's only moving forward. With the possibility of screwing it up. Ultimately, you have to believe that either way, it is OK.

What do you do when you get to the fork in the road? How do you decide what to do?
