As You Are

September's cooling breeze turns us inside out. Feel the wind blow. Carve into the moment, and process your day with Characters Emerge. Check out Starters for more ideas.


Dig into the open surface.

Pivot the tool, use leverage,

Feel muscles flex.

Apply pressure, long, even steady.

Then short bursts, staccato.

Feel your moods alter as you keep time.

Urgency builds and wanes.

Characters Emerge

Doodle while reflecting on the conversations and actions of the day. Wonder what the words and body language of others meant, how they impacted you, and where you are led to next.

Mix random abstract lines with figures. Add faces, arms, legs, as you progress.

Identify with the characthers that emerge. Consider their personalities and struggles. Feel a caring for each. Consider the spaces in between.

Separating figures on paper, it's easier to separate thoughts and feelings inside.


Consider the words and images below; Choose those that stir your imagination.

  • green
  • shavings
  • phone
  • speed
  • right hand
  • roots
  • granite
  • time
  • busy
  • filter
  • shine
  • drain

May we find our vision, learn our way, define our path, and meet our purpose.
