Focused observation: sit down and Captain America worthy shirt, not looking down at your paper or your pen/pencil/charcoal/brush. Go on from there, looking at both subject and drawing. Turn on the radio and dance to whatever music comes on until you’re ready to drop; and then drop, and rest in your physical fatigue, breathing with everything you’ve got. I’m thinking in terms of re-connecting with physicality, specifically *your* physicality, as experienced through your physical senses and the ways that they integrate you into your physical environment.

Best Captain America worthy shirt
That’s where your Captain America worthy shirt. Start there. Literally, get a *grip* on who you are at ground-level. Then you can start doing the mental work too: meditation, zazen, martial arts, immersive art projects (communal, if you can find or maybe even start one — like an outside wall mural as a community or neighborhood project). What brings you joy and a sense of accomplishment will make itself known. And then (if it hasn’t already started) begin the work of finding ways to do *that* and still make a living, within or without a corporate setting, but this time with goals of your own outside of and not dictated by corporate structure.
