I’ve been playing around with watercolors and salt. I’m not sure why I find it so entertaining, but I confess to being fascinated by watching the salt soak up the water. And then later when the paper is dry, I enjoy the tactile sensation of brushing the salt off and really taking a look at what pattern is left behind.
I’m making what I call my “stick people” again. Simple rectangles – about bookmark size – that I often just add a head to. And then write something on the back. I like that they have somewhat hidden messages that aren’t obvious just looking at their fronts. A little more complex than first sight. Nuanced like real people are.
Today, Ash Ambirge of The Middle Finger Project did a blog post about the responses she received to a questionnaire she sent her clients. Go read it here – I’ll wait.
The answers were remarkable weren’t they? No wonder she was impressed. But I’m really impressed with the questions. And particularly the first one about a 6-word memoir summing up your life. I’ve totally latched on to that, and am already considering the possibilities. I think I may make this a daily practice. Well that might be a bit ambitious, so maybe I’ll lower that a bit to semi-regular instead. But whatever my actual practice, I think it’ll be delightful to have a series of 6-word life summaries. Worded Selfies. Doesn’t that sound fun?
So you’ve already seen my first selfie stick person. And here’s the 6-word life summary I wrote on back:
Quiet; heart too shiny to hide.
Come play with me. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to hear your 6 words. Please share!
