GUEST BLOGGER FRIDAY!
GUEST BLOGGER FRIDAY!
Below are two photographs and the doodle.
Here’s the bush:
The Doodle: Freedom to Fly and Transform
On the way into the store, select a shopping basket, not a cart.
Make a beeline to the far corner in the back and get a free sample of coffee.
Check out the sample.
Walk around the store, shopping and drinking coffee.
Find a new food and read the label for possible future.
Grocery shopping is an Event!
|Trader Joe’s is an Event!|
|Doodled the Adventure of Trader Joe’s|
Heal My Voice launched the first official project at a women gathering in Baltimore/DC in May 2011.
In June, twenty-one women said, yes, to a nine month project of writing, speaking and leadership growth. We spent the first month listening for the story that wants to emerge.
|Doodle from your heart.|
In July, we added Doodling, inspired by the colorful, creative, Melissa McClain. (We were focused on Discovering the story.) You can find Melissa on Facebook to learn more about the Doodling Challenge every month. http://www.facebook.com/melissaAnneColors .
In August, I am going to combine the Doodling with Photography. This month in Heal My Voice we are Exploring the story. The other night, I was weaving around Facebook and found something called the August Break 2011 on Amy Miyamoto’s page. (http://www.facebook.com/AmyMiyamotoPage)
Amy wrote a blog about how she was joining a “No rules. No pressure. August Break from regular blogging.” The idea was created by Susannah Conway. (Link to her blog: http://www.susannahconway.com/the-august-break-2011/)
Words from Susannah’s blog:
“Okay, here’s the plan for the August Break: you simply share one photo (or more!) per day on your blog – Monday to Friday, or every day. Or whenever you feel moved to share. Using any camera – DSLR, compact, Polaroid, Holga, iPhone (my choice), Instax, film or digital – with or without words – anything goes! – for the whole of August. No pressure – just looking at August through your camera lens as a way to be more present this summer. And to have a little break from the pressures and expectations of regular blogging.
There are NO RULES, people! Just sunshine (hopefully) and a bit of fun. And lots of lovely photos to look at.”
So, I am totally inspired by the combination of the two. As I walk around Toluca Lake, CA every day, I am always inspired by words, nature, people and more. I am thinking about Doodling the Photograph of the Day.
Join me for some creative expansion during the month of August. Or anytime… Post your doodles on Facebook: Heal My Voice Page or Jonas Watch Page.
