Here is a fun exercise I did for Carla Sonheim’s Silly IV workshop. I went outside, sat on my apartment steps for 10 minutes, and furiously recorded whatever thoughts that popped into my head. Then I went back to my room and colored the doodle with marker and colored pencil, as fast as I could. I was pretty dumbfounded to see in drawing how much nonsense whirls around in my head... this is everything that one tries to calmly observe and let go during meditation, and yet this chaos is where creativity springs forth. Hm.
P.S. Carla awarded me the “Squeen (silly + queen) of the Day” title for this silliness. Whee!
