"A doodle is an unfocused drawing made while a person's attention is otherwise occupied." So sayeth Wikipedia, which adds this observation:
"According to a study published in the scientific journal Applied Cognitive Psychology, 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." [Wikipedia article on Doodle]
This past week I found myself totally into doodling! I've started a new job and had to attend a 4 day 'retreat' during which a boatload of information came my way. By Day 3 I found concentrating a bit of a challenge. This week now, as I was going over my notes for it all, I was highly entertained by the papers for Day 3. The doodling was wonderfully elaborate which I didn't realize until now. And it really kept me in focus.
I used a cheap Bic ball point pen; the paper was a 4x6 notepad.
That's all I got today! Thanks for stopping by.
