I am a compulsive artist.

I realized that today when I stepped away from the clothesline and realized that
I had hung out the laundry by analogous color groups, in a set pattern that used
elements of line, color, and shape to create a composition. Many of my older
school notebooks have pages of notes battling waves of lines that threaten to
