I've come to the end of the Hebrew alphabet, all 22 letters.
It has felt as if each drawing is a prayer, an incantation; an alchemical mix of sounds, collage and drawing.

Drawing here is a discipline that requires effort. I am being pushed to work without expectations, making without a plan. The constant use of the same format, the same shape, is both familiar and yet challenging. There is an order to it, a ritual. What will happen once I've used up all the Hebrew letters of the alphabet. Where will I travel next?
These are alcehmical drawings, leading me on, taking me somewhere.
Reaching image 9, journeying towards 10 or rather 1 “yod” new departure!
