...symbols... by Saborcat ...symbols... by Saborcat
So today I'm sitting at the top tower of this ride at Lake Compounce (an amusement park in Connecticut) called the Skyride and I suddenly get this undeniable urge to draw these symbols in the format of a letter. They seem so familiar to me as if they were part of a written language I should be use to seeing. If anyone has any information about these symbols or at least feels drawn to them please let me know.

Funny thing—I draw symbols like these in my notebooks all the time!  :D (Big Grin) So I definitely feel a connection with this piece.  I think I know that "urge to draw these symbols" of which you speak.

do you have more you could show me?
Also when you have the urge to draw them, is it to look just like this? or be more defined?

I guess to answer your questions; no I don't really have more at the moment to post. The symbols that I get urges to draw are a bit more elegant and refined looking but still mainly consist if swirly lines and circles play a huge part too. When I feel compelled to make them I don't sit there and actually think about what I'm writing/drawing. My hand just does it. Which makes me think there is something more to them than just random squiggles as they are usually fairly consistent now when my hand writes them out. We're there any other questions that you had?

Second column 3rd spot looks like something ive seen that means some sort of classification of a clan.
I took Chinese this year and some of these look like the symbol for "wo" Which means "I"

7th row, 5th column. the s curve with two dots resembles a writing that my friend came up with that represents an "A", and the last row, 4th column looks almost like the "C". I've got the alphabet in my gallery if you want to see.

These are very interesting, a private teacher of mine actually writes in that kind of symboling. I could try and get you agold of him if you still want. And you're also the first person I now know that knows what Lake Compounce is o_o and the Skyride is fun.
