Doodling In Color for Sanity's Sake

This is what kept me sane today. I drew lines and connected dots and coloured in diamonds, and then I took pictures of it.

I may be Canadian, but this American mid-term election business wrung me out last night. All my friends in the States are the strongest people I know right now. I’m convinced. Socially I’m surrounded by powerful super-people. The call and walk and email and text to get out the vote. They march in the streets. They love with a fierce passion that inspires others rise to meet it.

In this situation, I’m physically far away from all of it, so I send out comments and texts to thank them, pray for their wellness, and doodle my anxiety out while I eat mashed potatoes like its my job and I’m working overtime.

We live in interesting times, don’t we?
