I am not an organized artist. I don't use sketchbooks much, although I keep telling myself I should. I enjoy working improvisationally- when the inspiration is flowing, it is great being in the zone.
So I started my research for Games. I thought I'd end up doing something related to all the games I remember playing with my family as a child: card games, board games, you name it. I have a plethora of possible inspirations.
But when I was writing the blog post to announce the theme, I vaguely remembered the title 'Games People Play.' I thought it was from a movie, but when I googled the words, I got blurbs on Transactional Analysis and Eric Berne.
Although I haven't done therapy in awhile, I am trained as a clinical therapist. I probably learned something about this in my many-years-ago grad school classes! But the bits that I've read are sending me down a totally different path than what I'd first envisioned. Mmm, finally my art and my professional training intersect. This could be interesting!
