My perspective is off

Sometimes I wonder if I see the world with distorted view. Just like in that Ocular migraine, you know when lights flash in your eyes, the objects of your affection are distorted, and then you feel a slight discomfort throughout your being. Just like yesterday: our company big shots came to meet the staff. All good and nice, chatting, eating mini quiches, bits of cheeses and crackers, and drinking sodas and water. When the staff left, not at once, though, every time the assistant smiled and thanked us. I wanted to say "for what?" All was during business hours.....How is that related to perspective? I am going to exercise my fifth (of whatever) amendment, and not speak, otherwise I will be in trouble.

Well, I am just in a nasty mood today, and might smooth my thoughts later on.

At one point in my amateurish artist life I was to draw stairs or walls or windows in perfect harmonious perspective. I sat on the stairs, staring at the walls, and
my pencil refused to move. It had an "on strike" sticker attached on the lead part.
I started sobbing. Went back to my classroom (yes, this was in one of my art classes). Yvonne Singer, who was our instructor, told me to sit down at my desk, and draw what ever I saw around me. I was able to draw my desk, stuff on it, and somehow the objects appeared in perfect harmony. I still remember how encouraging she was to all of us.

The pictures for today are from last night. I was getting tired, when I was doing the coloring for the blocks. However, I will leave it as is, to show that I am not perfect, after all. It really should be obvious, but that is another story. Maybe there is a quiz somewhere for that.
Of course I had to check, and found this:

and my result was this:

How quirkyalone are you?
Your score was 57. Somewhat quirkyalone (otherwise known as quirkytogether):
You are probably part of a mysterious group of people, the quirkytogethers. You share many of our quirky qualities, but you manage to find yourself, on a regular basis, in a coupled situation. Interesting.

I like the buildings because they have life! They aren't just perfect little boxes in perfect perspective....they have a vibrant, alive feeling to them. And the pencil drawing is FANTASTIC!! I love it. Lots of movement in that piece.

PS - I'm really quirky!! My score was 74!!

Thanks, Janet.
I will do my knitting this weekend, so drawing has to wait.

That quirky quiz is fun, isn't it!

I like the pencil drawing, too. It developed by itself. I had no idea what was going to happen, the pencil just kept moving.
