I've spent the past few days editing and scanning drawings from my emergency room journals (1981 through 1985) in preparation for a small book I plan to create. They were an intense 4 years for a number of reasons, a major one being the absence of any fixed schedule at work. I worked full time for 3 months alternating with 3 months off. When I worked I covered vacation time for the full time staff and thus had no fixed routine, working 3 different shifts haphazardly. My state of mind was reflected in the sketches and nonsense that soon filled the journals, especially the images in my depiction of the days of the week.
