Buddha Doodles

I love this idea! What a great expression and filled with goodness:)

Pieces of Bliss

I simply love little things that put a smile to my face. So what a bliss I felt when I discovered “Buddha Doodles“. It was love at first sight with the little Buddha character created by artist Molly Hahn.


Now first let me explain what a doodle is.

A doodle is a drawing made while a person’s attention is otherwise occupied. Doodles are simple drawings that can have concrete representational meaning or may just be abstract shapes.

Stereotypical examples of doodling are found in school notebooks, often in the margins, drawn by students daydreaming or losing interest during class. Other common examples of doodling are produced during long telephone conversations if a pen and paper are available.

Popular kinds of doodles include cartoon versions of teachers or companions in a school, famous TV or comic characters, invented fictional beings, landscapes, geometric shapes, patterns and textures. (Source Wikipedia)

I returned from the most recent trip to the Rockies at the beginning of October of last year–nearly 6 1/2 months ago–and not a day goes by where I don’t reflect on the experience at least once.  A common theme has been to consider what my time in…

Awesome idea for when in D.C!

The Sticky Egg

I haven’t been to Washington DC in a while, but I think I might go on this scavenger hunt the next time I’m in town.

Got any cash? You can, too.

Just check the back of the bills and find the buildings depicted there. It should be a pretty educational tour.


I also like the folded bill photo trick. Reminds me of squishing people’s heads between your finger and thumb.

I might add that to my tour, too.
