SCRIBBLINGS

Drawing, doodling and scribbling:

I make a habit of carrying a small notebook with me most of the time.  When I get to sit down (in a cafe, library, wherever) I draw, I doodle, I scribble.  I make lists, I get my thoughts in order, I put the world to rights or, more often than not, I don’t make any difference whatsoever.   It’s not about achieving anything in particular – it’s more a matter of focus, enjoyment, purpose (or none). Recently my scribblings have included research and thoughts about the ill-fated revolutionary, Jean-Paul Marat; the links between creativity and depression and the influence of ‘street’ photographers.   I am a people-watcher, an observer of life, an eclectic aesthete and a street photographer (of sorts).  Most things interest me, following a long period when very little did.  My leanings are towards the arts, mainly the visual arts, the corollary of which is that I am not and never have been much good at physics, chemistry and all that technical stuff.  I have been blogging since March 2013 and my hope is that others will enjoy what I do.
