My best prescription for not falling asleep in class is to doodle. So that was what I did today to fight the z's from a week of less than satisfying sleep. In art, there are always references one is making, whether direct or indirect, intentional or inadvertent. As I doodled this, it brought to mind the painting of St. Francis of Assisi below.
