“Has the world gone mad, or is it me? All these small things they gather round me.”
– Ben Howard, Small things.
Last week I sat in a court room taking notes for an article I was to write. Before hearing any cases we were told to listen to a speaker, now with all due respect this was probably the most boring half an hour of my life.
I found myself drawing little coloured flowers in my notebook. The girl next to me had filled the corner of her page with x’s and on the other side of me a girl had created a full page of a line design. When she later asked to borrow my pen so she could continue with another colour I realised I could no longer draw so I had to find a new distraction. This got me thinking, what do our doodles say about ourselves? Can they reveal anything about us?
I found a few websites that suggest my flower doodling could be explained as ‘a childlike innocence and indicate a gentle nature.’
I’m not sure how much I believe in this massive revelation that my doodle could suggest something about my personality but I found it interesting that the three of us in the courtroom were all doing the same thing but had all drawn different things.
Exciting news! The Footnotes, a website designed to uncover the woman’s mind recently published an article I wrote on the role of writing in my life.
Check it out! Please and thank you x.
