I appreciate your feedback, Kevin, though I don't live the kind of life or make the kind of money where I can just casually "see" a therapist.
Beyond that -- this outlet is just that. An outlet. I am as anonymous as one can reasonably be here, and I am not particularly threatened by the idea
of abuse, or married to the idea of aliens. You understand how that goes, right? Nothing to lose, worth crying over.
What is interesting to me is the drawings. I have tried -- over the last week -- to really cast myself backwards to the time I would have made them
(the late 1970's) and, to be honest, I don't have a lot of memories of doing them. As I pointed out before, I am capable of recognizing them as
mine, but beyond that, it all feels very disconnected, compared to, say -- the thousands of non-related drawings I did from that period, and on
through to the 90's, when I pretty much stopped drawing.
As soon as I get my hands on them again, I am going to scan a few and post them here for fun. It will be interesting to see what -- if any -- reaction
they get from ATS. Not in the sense of "OMG what happened to you?!", but maybe someone can point out where I would have picked up those ideas (giant
alien mother-ship cross-sections, with zoological and garden spheres and decks, or even massive cross--sections of underground bases) back in the
Again -- I'm not married to a supernatural or extra-terrestrial explanation. In fact -- I'd love it if someone could point out for me a precedent in
the world at that time that might have influenced my eight or nine year old self to draw stuff like that.
Thanks again for your feedback. It is as valuable as any other.
