Several years ago, in a kitchen one night with some itinerant friends, I was asked to draw something, rather spontaneously, on the spur of the moment, so with random pencil and paper, I generated a random assortment of lines which coalesced into this arrangement. It is, to this day, one of my favorites.
Just for fun.
on another note: When you have nothing better to do, and might be looking for a video to watch, check out
A Midnight Clear. I just finished seeing this 1992 movie for the first time, and it is worthwhile.
