Time Not Wasted

I spend a lot of time tinkering, doodling, and experimenting. I'm not quite adept enough at any of my endeavors to be called an artist or craftswoman. I enjoy it, though, and like John Lennon (or was it Bertrand Russell? Kierkegaard? Marthe Troly-Curtin?) said, "Time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time."

I love television, and there are some series I'll never get tired of. I'm currently watching Parks and Recreation for the third time. While I catch up on Netlix and Hulu, I usually doodle or draw in my journal. I also do this during work meetings and workshops, because it helps me remember what I've heard. I can look back at a doodle and recall exactly what I was listening to at that particular moment. It's just one of the many reasons I take a journal with me everywhere I go.
