Doodle Notes

I often find myself scribbling along margins of diaries during meetings. I think that is an indication of boredom, which is not really a good thing. Wikipedia, though, claims otherwise:

… doodling can aid a person’s memory by expending just enough energy to keep one from daydreaming, which demands a lot of the brain’s processing power, as well as from not paying attention. Thus, it acts as a mediator between the spectrum of thinking too much or thinking too little and helps focus on the current situation.

My doodles are usually in the form of lines. The lines are usually placed close together to create a gradient from dark to light (or vice versa). Sometimes they radiate from a central point to look like fireworks in the night sky.

There are certain doodles that take on different shapes and patterns. This one turned out quite interesting, and I hope to recreate it digitally at some point of time.

What about you? Do you doodle? Do you think it’s a good thing? Can you interpret doodles? What does this doodle say to you?

Hi…just visiting from the Team Tiny Peppers list! I’m always doodling something. Have you checked out Zentangles? It’s similar, but has certain designs you can use to create with. I do a lot of these for fun, but it is supposed to me meditative, too. Happy Blogging! πŸ™‚
