Although I adore horses I never tried to sketch or paint one. But this is the day when I had to. I was given a number and it was explained to me how to use an ugly, old, square machine. I will have to punch in my number not only when I come to work and leave, but also tell it what I'm doing, for how long, when I'm doing something else... I understand that it is not (only) to control me, but to help them see the amount of time that's spent on each project so that they know how much to bill the clients. But..... I immediately had a picture of a wild horse that someone is trying to tie down and I hate that. The picture didn't leave my mind, so I had to try and paint a sad horse in my journal.
