The snow is gone and the ground is green, woo hooo!
Little sprouts everywhere.
I am sooo glad so many of you want to doodle with me.
I used to keep journals, oh back beginning in the 2nd grade.
Me and my diary, telling it all my secrets.
Then having to rip up pages and burn them for fear my parents would read them.
But, whilst doodling, I have been throwing in a few feelings and ideas swirling about.
Not major journaling though.
Not yet at least.
Right now I just want to mindlessly draw.
I don't want to think about it, or hash anything out.
I just want to relax and unwind in the drawing.
I doodled every night this week.
I had more peaceful rests at night because of it.
My mind was less full and thinking endlessly.
Lovee was like, that's a lot of stuff on those pages.
And I said, that's nothing compared to how my brain feels :)
Lots of you doodle already.
But have those of you who don't doodle regularly, started again?
I am trying to figure out a way for us to share our doodles.
You could send me photos/scans and I could upload them into an online album if you'd like?
Or, you can send photos and I can post them every so often in doodle blog posts?
I was going to start adding a little color to my doodles.
However I only did 1 heart.
I realized, I am still just in doodle mode, and not ready for color quite yet.
I had a little glitter paint on hand.
But, I know my ink will smear, so, I am just going to stay in the doodle days for a tinge longer.
I am in this place right now where the doodling is strictly for therapeutic fun relaxing reasons.
And not for work.
I don't want to have to think quite yet.
So, here I am.
Setting a little bit of doodling time aside every evening.
(and sometimes more, because I just can't help myself)
Fill me in on if you are doodling too.
Having fun? Feeling blocked?
Not joining in yet?
Let's chat in comments.
I'll be there chatting, so if you want to peek back, feel free.
I am in a place myself, where my mind is searching for more shapes.
And, I feel this really intense calm and "zoning out" in all this doodling.
I am liking this.
