list it tuesday
i've been wanting to add some zip to this blog with a regular feature, something to put a little spontaneity within its structure. as i mentioned in my pillow book post, i love making lists. they help me recall, classify, learn, and plan. they put strengthening girders on my brain and let it run wild at the same time.
so every tuesday, until i get bored or incapacitated, i'm going to post a handwritten list. of what kind i don't know. maybe brands of peanut butter. everywhere i went last saturday. types of trees in my neighborhood. (probably not). my favorite four letter words. irregular verbs in french. all the florists in town. wines i like. fruits that are in season. things that pissed me off yesterday. stops along an old train route. just something to document a slice of my life - past, present or future - on a regular basis.
anyone want to play along? i'd love the company. scribble a list on an index card, create a list in your art journal, write a list on the back of a receipt. maybe it's simply your to-do list that you want to keep tabs on from week to week. however you want to do it is fine. no need to let me know in advance, and no need to participate every week. simply leave a comment here on any tuesday you've posted your own list, and that way we'll know where to find you. i'll leave it prompt free; choose a topic that is important to you, and you'll inspire the rest of us with new list ideas. if you're a regular visitor and this doesn't seem like your thing, please don't feel obligated to join in. voyeurs welcome!
feel free to pass along this link to any list-a-holics you know, and we'll get started next tuesday, october 19!
