Except for my vacation time, I've been too busy this year to sketch or work on art. The lack of creativity has been frustrating when I have had time. Does anyone actually read these shareholder updates that the companies are required to send? I found a new use for them! I'm scribbling in them. Since it's something I'd throw away anyway, they're less precious than sketchbooks or pads that I spent money on (even if I only paid $1 for the pad.) I will throw them away when I'm done.
It's time again to make decisions on my 401k. All these funds feels like throwing money into a black hole. I'm really good at my job but these financial things might as well be printed in Greek for all I understand of it. I have seen an advisor--then it's like Greek translated into Korean and when it gets back to English, the original meaning is lost so the information is still useless to me.
I have a pad at work next to my keyboard. When I have trouble focusing, I doodle on the pad. Sometimes it looks like zentangles, mostly it looks like a to-do list with little sketches inserted between the blocks I cross off. I think I have panda on the brain. Lately I've been drawing pandas.
PS: Jo, thanks for visiting. Congrats on the new house.
