When I wake in the middle of the night I can’t sleep I need something to do…
I reach for a Hahnemühle Post Card and a stack of images I keep by the bed…
Friends prompt middle-of-the-night postcards…
silly comments or an exchange or an image.
Rex begonias lead to testing psychedelic inks… Seriously, I was not on acid just sleepy.
Rexting! She calls it!
A friend in Florida or Germany sends a message
in a dark nighttime bottle
and I turn the light on and pick up my pencil….
Then it gets posted! How cool is it to get a surprise!
Because I journal and do morning stream of consciousness exercises,
I am again trying to participate in Linda Hill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday.
I write to a timer, 15 minutes, no editing except spelling, and of course I add my art!
You can do it too!
