Moodling + paying attention

Moodle is a term I came across in Brenda Ueland's book - If you want to write. In it she says "So you see the imagination needs happy idling, dawdling and puttering" (p. 32). I love this idea and provides a holding space  to let thoughts wander. I have been preparing a writing workshop today - I have also made these two folded books as I moodled!! I have just realised that if you stop rushing about you notice more, increase your ability to concentrate and take it in, absorb it, embody it. Placing this together has taught me a lot - reflexivity in action
