what happens when i multitask
the first creative every day prompt of the year is body, and what better place to start than my addled brain? generally speaking, it's not good when i try to do two things at once. neurons stray and misfire. incompatible thoughts consort and do naughty things. intentions cross paths, exit the wrong way, and doodles almost wind up in the microwave because of it. no, no, i didn't nuke the journal, but it was close! when the coffee was on the scanner and i went to open the microwave door, for one long moment i knew something wasn't right but didn't know exactly WHAT wasn't right. and again i realized that the world is a safer place when i do not multitask.
by the way, we're back on winter break. school canceled! my doodleweek! truncated! what's a wind chill of 5000 below when the sun is sparkling like gold? while i go assess the artsydamage that i assume has been going on around here behind my back, enjoy this colorful tour of yasmina's bubble. not only is she a talented and expressive doodler, she's only just turned fifteen! then go see shannon, grab your paintbrush, turn up the volume and see if this doesn't fill you with good vibes and a big grin. shannon and i have become good coffee pals over the last few months and i just love being around her. she's a creative whirlwind, full of sunshine and calm, and a born leader - i can't wait for her inside out course to start. please join us! i'll be the straggler doing one thing at a time, alternating between the yoga and deep breathing.
