Wednesday 19.05.2021 mapping

Thunder in the air today I take a quick walk to check out some corners I’m having difficulty with on paper, spaces seem much wider and rounder experientially than mapped ‘accurately’ into 2 dimensions, as on google maps where the Glen appears as a long bird skull, and I’m trying to get around this one way or another

I enjoy having my sketchbook and pencil in my pocket, catching the raindrops between graphite and pencil, noticing that no place is a straight line but full of corners, even the paths, so linear and direct in the head are sinuous when I am bodily inside them. I imagine that short legged avatar, so hard to control in google maps street view
