Blank Pieces of Paper
There is something so refreshig about a plain old piece of blank paper. I do enjoy sitting down before it, so white and smooth, just begging for you to express your creativity.
Blank paper is an opportunity to experience so much. Perhaps you have a story you’d like to record. Or an idea you don’t want to forget. A list of errands, a phone number. A sketch, perhaps, of a dress you’d love to make, or your dream home? And how many little girls have filled page after page with swirly depictions of their first names, and the last names of their beaus?
A blank piece of paper can give you a chance to release. Your anger, frustration, pain, passion, love, guilt, joy, excitement! A scalding criticism, a luscious letter, a heartbreaking confession. Blank paper can be a real opportunity!
Blank paper gives us a remarkable chance to express a part of who you are. It gives you a freedom seldom allowed us in spoken word or action. Even if it’s unpleasant, it is a release and can be easily destroyed.
With technology so heavily involved in everything from our toothbrushes to our tool boxes, having an analog record of our thoughts makes us feel simpler, more relaxed. Diaries, daily planners, calendars… As easy and accessible these are on our smartphones, it’s not the same as is is stuck to the fridge or hidden in a secret place, away from prying eyes.
What about you? How do you express yourself on blank paper?
