I have been noodling around. What is that?
Noodle around: Informal. to play, experiment, or improvise.
I’m supposed to be working on the topics I mentioned to you recently. You would think that I’d make a quick start especially after some of you very sweetly responded with your choices. But no…what did I do instead? This:
As you can see, I took the fourteen topics and worked them into a Wordle
! I love ‘wandering off’ on the internet and through a series of clicks and links lose myself in the Web and find lots of thought-provoking online material. Just this morning, a ‘techie’ friend of mine, Ruben, gave me a link and I took a small ‘walk on the internet’.
In the past I would feel guilty about this ‘waste’ of time. Not any more. I’ve realized that by doing this from time to time, I actually feel challenged and it makes me more creative. I thought I was crazy, until I read some material that substantiates what I felt. And I have the perfect quote to go with this finding.
So you see, imagination needs noodling – long, inefficient, happy idling, dawdling and puttering. ~ Brenda Ueland
So now I’m free to ‘roam’ and imagine and noodle around. Try it and let me know if it works for you!.
May you be inspired – everyday!
