My drawing for today is “Writing and Drawing, 1999.” It shows five portraits of the artist writing and drawing with his pen. On one page it says, “We want a K.C. rooted tree, and from that you can write your trees and branches of poems with your pen. Root is sravanam-kirtanam.” Another shows a self-portrait drawing a picture of Radha and Krishna: “Are you going to keep on drawing? Why not?” It’s another way to aspire for Krishna conscious service. They are behind-the-scenes sketches of the artist with pen in hand and it gives us an insight as to his personal working character.

(Satsvarupa das Goswami 4-17-12)


Reading Sanatorium is like looking at this self-portrait of the author. I am not very far into the book but I have to wonder how many of the characters are just different aspects of S.D.G.'s own personality.
