"For drawing sake"
We draw to explore
We draw to discover ourselves
We draw because we want to know
We draw because Leonardo did
and Stewart Davis did
and Käthe Kollwitz did
and Ellsworth Kelly did
and Pollock did
and Vincent did
We draw instead of taking drugs
Or giving into depression
We draw to be poets
To Laugh at politics
We draw because we love to
because we have to
In the words of the poet T.S. Elliott
"And the end of all of our exploring
is to arrive at were we started
and know the place for the first time"
We draw for drawing sake
