Featuring Monica Hannan...sort of!
When I taught at Asilomar this past April I was lucky enough to have Monica as one of my students. They say you have to watch out for the "quiet ones"...
Monica has a bit of a stressful career...she just sent me a picture of what she did to her office wall. I'm still shaking my head and just knew that it would entertain you as much as it did me. This almost reminds me of the time my friend Beth and I were in a hotel that had huge suede headboards...we spent a good part of our evenings sitting on our beds and drawing feathers on the headboards. Someday I might grow up...
Here's Monica's story...enjoy! Hugs, Cindy :)
When I came home from Asilomar and your wonderful class I started practicing feathers. I kind of got hooked on them. I would sit in business meetings doodling them in the margins of my agendas and drawing them on my leg with my finger during church. I’m a doodler by nature anyway and I remembered what you said about muscle memory and the importance of practice. Last week, as I sat contemplating my empty wall it occurred to me that feathers would be the perfect thing. It is chalkboard paint and artist’s chalk. It’s got sort of a late 60’s “Summer of Love” vibe, doesn’t it? It’s the perfect fit for my office as it tones down the seriousness and relaxes my employees when I call them in for a chat. It certainly gives us something to talk about. I owe you. J
