My brain had too many things running through it … things to do, errands, juggling schedules, re-scheduling, driving all over … It wouldn’t settle down, not even when I picked up hook and yarn to knit or crochet.  I would work on a row, and not satisfied with something – the stitch, the pattern, the yarn – I would put it away again.

So I picked up pen and sketchbook instead, even if it was to just scribble all over the page.  I had to get my mind to settle down and refocus again.

Flipping through the pages, I started to work on half-finished doodles and kept going through the pages until my brain clicked on one.  And it found one … and quite symbolic of the state of mind that I was currently in …


This had started out as a quick sketch to put down on paper an idea I had.  It didn’t quite work out the way that I had pictured in my head, so had set it aside.  Now, I decided to add some shading to it, and took it from there.  I may have over-shaded a bit, but no matter.

It served its purpose … it slowed me down and made my mind focus on one thing, even if for just a while.
