Doodle Wednesday

I guess if doodling starts with line, then this little mandala qualifies. These two pieces of hand dye have been following me around in the studio for a while now and the other day at work I cut them into 3/4 inch ribbons and crocheted them into harmony. Look closer, be mesmerized. I had it hanging on the wall at eye level in my office cube and find myself staring at it and stepping onto a jungle's edge beach in my mind. My doctor has started me on some medication to even out mildly elevated blood pressure. She and the office lady warned me not to take it at night because I would not get any rest for trips to the bathroom but the label also warned of drowsiness. The label won out - I sleep deeply, restfully and untroubled. I dream about the ocean and have not yet peed the bed.

nice little piece, like the colors. yeah, i have to take a little bp med that makes me pee. i never had high bp until i moved to the up, i was always a walking corpse, very hypotensive. not sure what elevated it here. maybe i ma not at sea level anymore, could this be a reason. direction wise, i have no clue. i should wear at all times a personal compass so i dont get lost.

Your colors are feeding my hunger for summer and warmth. Hope all is well health-wise. It is such heaven to sleep so deeply, a gift. It seems to be more rare for me these days.

If you suspended it from a cord, it would sway back and forth, rendering you drowsy...
Jude, try Melatonin. I never slept better since I started using it!
