while school has another month before it decides to hit millions of children on the back of their heads like sledgehammers, my doodles have had another occasion besides chemistry class to flourish.
i had the opportunity to attend a beautiful retreat a couple of weeks ago which served to strengthen my faith and create some lovely friendships.
there was plenty of time for prayer and reflection, as well as ample recreation time with sports tournaments and card games galore.
but there were also several beautiful talks that took place periodically throughout the week, on topics such as virtue in friendship, prayer, and the universal call to greatness.
fortunately, during the course of the week, each attendee was furnished with a notebook and pen, for which i was especially grateful.
i find it very hard to sit and listen to talks/lecture etc. without using my hands in some way. during the school year i always took refuge in doodling, so with the help of a heavenly-smooth-nibbed blue pen and my notebook i used this same method.
since these talks were given by holy men and women of God on religious topics, i entitle this post ‘divinely inspired doodles.’ and i really did listen to the talks – and take real notes using actual words – the doodling just filled in those parts between note-taking when the irresistible urge to fidget forced my hand into more creative channels 🙂
thanks for stopping in! i really enjoyed letting my inner flowery self control my hands and pen for a couple of afternoons 🙂
