Waiting

time2014

Spring is almost done and summer is on its way, which sometimes feels surprising and uncertain here in the northeast. I felt off time-wise from fall 2014 on through to now, and I don’t quite know why. It seemed like fall came too late, and when winter finally showed up it was brutal. There’s something about it all that feels like a ridiculous amount of waiting, or false starts. I wonder if bears and other hibernating animals get as antsy as I do. It’s uncomfortable to feel like something else should be happening. It makes it harder to focus, and I found myself doodling this disgruntled tired bear in my sketchbook. I wonder if scientists use anything like a fitbit on bears to track activity over time. It seems like this is technology ripe for assessing animal behavior.
