Juggling life through a bi-polar lens. Sometimes up, sometimes down. Mostly trying to tread water in the middle. Creating a likeness to a normal life. Whatever "normal" is...

ABC Wednesday....

I is for IDLE DOODLING...........


This is a typical doodle of mine.
Sometimes I colour in some of the shapes.
But mostly I don't like that.
It doesn't "feel" right.
It frustrates me and I end up tearing it up and starting again, this time leaving the shapes "open".

I know you get graphologists, who try to interpret your handwriting, but do you also get doodle-ologists? If so, I'd be intrigued to know what they would make of this.....

Intersecting, curling swirls. Teardrops, possibly. Or flowers. Hmmmm.... do you see anything? Other than the men in white coats approaching...?

Wonderful Doodlings! Butterflys flitting amongst the flowers.

The men in white coats are walking blank canvases. Doodle all over them!

Chalkhills Collective said...

This reminds me of spirograph. Did you ever have one of those? All those bits of plastic with cogs that you could make patterns with!

I'm a compulsive doodler - I just wish mine were half as creative.

I would frame this one if it were mine!

Lynda (Granny K) said...

You are definately a closet quilter!

Dragonstar said...

Now I can see the difference between your creative doodling and my idle scribbling!

Hi Helena!

Hope you, Bob & Dilly's had a good Easter despite the 'chilly' weather!!!
I've been bored today so played a new ' meme' game - Sorry have tagged you! As, before ignore or pass onto Bob or Dilly.

Best wishes
Blue

ps - tell Bob, I'll be meeting bears this week, the gang @ Basically Bears!!!

My gosh, Helena, I can't figure out how I missed coming by last week. This is a wonderful post for the letter "I" and I'll definitely be back to see what you come up with for "J."

I came here looking for your J post, but will comment here.
Your doodle looks like it was computer generated, something like a Spirograph or similar.

Cme by here from the wonderfull Merry Daze blog. Your uncle metaphore post on depression is excellent - almost poetic in style. I have only had situational depression linked to bereavement and the menopause when I was deficient in hormones but HRT sorts he worst of that out. I recognised that 'coming out of depression; when you look around and see your life, home and friendships need some TLC and a good brushing up again. Great blog.

Helena said...

THANK YOU ALL FOR THE FEEDBACK!!! I really appreciate it!

Yup, I remember spirographs!!! Great fun!
