Session 4 - Grandma Kay

Dr. Ethan has an ivy plant in her office just like Grandma Kay's.  It needed water, so I gave it some out of my water bottle.  Dr. E said that she really liked that I noticed things. I told her I have a slip of Grandma's ivy growing in a bottle on my windowsill in my bedroom.  When no one was looking, I had cut it from the back of her plant at the garage sale they had after she died.  Dr. E asked me to draw Grandma Kay.

Instead of a pen, there was a container of sticks and a bottle of India Ink.  I picked out one and drew Grandma and her ivy.  Dr. E put out some coloured Posca markers and paints and said go for it.  I didn't want to, but I also wanted to.  I just coloured Grandma's heart and then made her hair into hearts.  Then I kept adding colour.

While I was drawing I started feeling dizzy.  I had a huge lump in my throat and my eyes burned. I wanted to pour that India ink all over everything.  But I didn't.  Dr. E asked how I felt, but I couldn't talk.
