They reminded me of a few months back in 2008 when I would doodle for five minutes every night at bedtime. I would dearly love to be able to draw and sketch 'properly' - but what I see in my head is never quite the same as what I produce on the page. Mostly, I was drawing randomly, from an image I was conjuring up - like these cards.
One night I decided to draw 'Pedro', my favourite childhood toy (more on him another time) who now lives in my bedroom. In case you're wondering, he's a donkey. And I like donkeys. The doodle of the little dog in the book reminded me of my own doodles - and how good it is to pick up pen and paper and just have a go, regardless of the outcome.

...reply to blog comments. I've always tried to, but I'm just not managing it at the moment, and I'm letting it go while I keep up with everything else that's going on. I'm feeling such a strong pull to be outside, and away from the computer. It's good to have a break, step outdoors and just breathe. I appreciate everyone who takes the time to visit here - thank you! I'm sure the balance will change again soon.
