one more reminder


i love to play with words in my doodles just as much as the actual doodling part itself, but i have been goofing off entirely too much this summer and needed a little reminder to sit on my caboose and start churning out the words again.

oh, and since i've been goofing off, i forgot to take pictures last friday, saturday, and sunday to document what i was doing at exactly 7:45 p.m. (for the record, i was: 1) having a beer and a pizza at rudy's pizzeria, 2) moving furniture and throwing away over half the kids' toys in a manic fit so the house could breathe again, and 3) desperately hoping that my children would go to bed early for once. they didn't.) go see jane for more weekend documentaries!

To be able to express yourself - in any way is a gift. I love your drawings and your interpretations of the themes. So very inspiring. For color, do you use water color mostly?

I'm trying to make time for my writing, drawing, playing, photographing... but haven't found the perfect formula yet. Still, I'm enjoying all the trying too :)

I have read a study about Alzheimer's Disease where they researched nuns in a convent. They researched and tracked the activities of nuns with and without the diesease. Those who did not have the diesease had one thing in common, they wrote - poetry, journals and other forms of formal writing activity. Those who had the disease did not. The stipulation was that writing was a mental execise and stimulated memory.

Oh I love doodling too but I just can't find the time.
And oh BTW I know exactly what you mean and feel in your #2 & #3.

Oh, children NEVER go to bed early when we want them to, that is just one of those facts of life! I hope you do not mind, Aimee, I have been terribly presumptuous and added your name to the weekword list, just because your post exactly fits the word this week!
