When the mind wanders

I was sitting at my desk trying to come up with a topic for this blog and I started doodling on my piece of paper.  That was it!  I could do my blog on doodling.  How many times have all of you started doodling in a notebook while you were supposed to be listening to your teacher?  I have seen some pretty impressive doodles come out of some English classes here.  Whether you are a fabulous artist or just making random shapes, doodling and more serious art has a tendancy to focus our thoughts and make things more clear, or at least it did for me this after noon.

Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

I am currently sitting at home wiping the tears from my eyes.  I just finished reading Mockingjay and wanted to blog about my reactions to the book.  It was an incredible and surprising book throughout, always teasing me one way and turning out another.  As I write this, I endeavor not to give away the smallest detail, because this is one of those books you have to experience for yourselves.
