...(and I don't mean cutesie-tootsie as in bunnies and kitty-cats wearing clothes!).
One of my drawing students produced a stunningly good and powerful piece of work when I asked her to do something whimsical and Julia sent me a wonderful spontaneous looking piece called Sending Valentines on a Snowy Day which she described as a bit of whimsy.
I bought this book , which I've mentioned before, called My Heart Wanders by Pia Jane Bijerk a few years ago because it was so different from the goal oriented kinds of books I was more used to. (I've no affilliation with Amazon by the way - I just thought you might like to read the blurb!)
It made me think that being whimsical - which I think of as being light of heart - is another way of being that I could try out for size now and then.
Playful rather than purposeful, delicate rather than bold, shades of grey (no not that book!) rather than primary colours, subtle, random, accepting ambiguity, tentative, open to different interpretations, the poetry not the prose.
I want to wander Paris with my camera....or maybe Venice (now there's a tempting thought!)
Did you try Gretchen Rubin's quiz? (see yesterday's post) Are any of you Rebels? Or Upholders?
