pencil on paper
i went through a 3day silent retreat last weekend, and happily i was able to sketch again. i think the last time i tried to draw was in grade school, in our art classes.
i liked what i was able to come up with since i didn't really expect much. i'm just someone who tries his hand at new things every now and then.

I too am a mortal man, the same as all the rest,
and a descendant of the first man formed on earth.
And in my mother's womb I was molded into flesh
in a ten-months' period-body and blood,
from the seed of man, and the pleasure that accompanies marriage.
And I too, when born, inhaled the common air,
and fell upon the kindred earth; wailing, I uttered that first sound common to all.
In swaddling clothes and with constant care I was nurtured.
-- Wisdom 7:1-4
Now there were shepherds in that region living in the fields and keeping the night watch over their flock. The angel of the Lord appeared to them and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were struck with great fear. The angel said to them, "Do not be afraid; for behold, I proclaim to you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For today in the city of David a savior has been born for you who is Messiah and Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find an infant wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger."
-- Luke 2:8-12
