Purple Thistle by Sylvia Plath

"I brought, from my walk yesterday, a purple thistle and a dandelion cluster home with me, and drew them both in great and loving detail; I also did a rather bad drawing of a teapot and some chestnuts, but will improve with practice; it gives me such a sense of peace to draw; more than prayer, walks, anything. I can close myself completely in the line, lose myself in it. . . ." (http://www.brainpickings.org/2013/11/06/sylvia-plath-drawings-2/)
