I tried to meditate on an intuitive choice. I meditated for about 2 hours before a form began to grow in my mind.
March 24 - First attempt to carve out the shape I picture in my head.
While I hammered on the plaster lump, it became clear to me the amount of work it is going to be necessary with for forming the mass of drying plaster. I am already tender in my arms, but I feel a certain joy in shaping reality in front of me through this lump.
