article in Psychology Today doodling is helpful in memory retention. Boy, is that a 'Doodle Drawing' card for anyone working on trying to remember where they put their keys or walking into a room for something specific and once there can't remember what it was.
I liked the articles speculative theory that doodlers did better than non-doodlers while talking on the phone. You know...aimless scribbling and taking notes of names, numbers, etc.. Seems doodlers are sufficiently engaged in the moment and able to pay attention to the yakety yak yaker...in other words doodlers are 'not spacing out', but at least somewhat in the moment.
It continued through boring college lectures to teaching Middle Schoolers the Art of Doodling. And yes, they too started by drawing around their hand.
Now that I'm a Senior Citizen I think it's interesting that doodling has emerged as an Art Therapy specifically for calming the mind and relieve stress. Wow, that's a good idea for teaching Middle Schoolers.
Now, about Dragonfly Doodling. I bought the Entangled Dragonfies Coloring Book because I love to color and have a pot full of colored pencils...and I am a Dragonfly lady/collector.
Who could resist their caption, "Imagine a warm summer day as you choose your colors for this inspired-by-nature collection"!
Oh, did mention...these pages are for the experienced colorist and the more than 30 illustrations provide limitless possibilities for experimentation?!!!
Should I finish the less busy page 1?
I'm so over page 2, but there's that "Finish what you start" thingy!
Maybe I'll start page 3...when I'm on the phone with a YaketyYaker!
KEEP CALM and DOODLE ON!!!
