Thanks for joining me. Six weeks into our Daily Doodle in the Shac-Shack, and I think those of us who have participated can all agree that doodling helps focus the mind and stop the thoughts a-wandering down the wrong path.
Yesterday, we did a basic pattern doodle together, which I personally thoroughly enjoyed. It took me down Memory Lane to my school days, back to Fort Pitt and Canterbury Cathedral and Rochester Cathedral School Christmas Carol Services and all sorts. Took me to loads of lovely places, in fact! ‘Ever let the Fancy roam’, said Keats, ‘Pleasure never is at home’.
But then I was brought out of my reverie by several people who found the pattern difficult to reproduce. So here’s a photo recap – just in case you needed a little more visual guidance.
I even added a little colour…
The pattern took me to Canterbury Cathedral of all places! But I think I see why….
And Rochester Cathedral too!
Mmm. When, one day, we are allowed to visit these places again, I think I will. How we took them for granted! How we assumed they would always be there for us, whenever we fancy. Not so. Not at all. I don’t think I will ever take anything for granted again, after this pandemic.
Love and Hugs
