Just flipping back through my toke journal I notice that I don’t tend to draw images that often, but when I do it tends to be in response to a feeling of what I can only call linearity. I tend to draw simple designs including parallel lines contracting to a perspective point, or lines originating from a point as rays, and it always seems to be in response to what I describe as a feeling that is wordlessly connected to this geometric arrangement.
(describing a high) now it’s all coming into the linear groove:
A linear, sonic experience:
I’m not altogether sure that this is remarkable, but two things: I want to draw and sketch more while high, and maybe I care about this because I’ve always harbored a certain amount of jealousy towards those with synesthesia — a condition wherein a cognitive or sensory stimulus of one kind stimulates a sensory or cognitive response of another kind. Synesthetes can, for example, experience sounds as colors, or sights as tastes. It’s always seemed like a gift
One thought on “While high: feeling linearity”
That does sound like an incredible gift, being a synesthete.
