SOL17 DoodleaDay 16 -Hopeful To Dos
What do you do when the world seems to be falling apart in hate, the opposite of the god of love?
Why is the world falling apart? See Bill Moyers on Fascism and What can we do? See the Guardian’s How to Survive Gaslighting Manipulation
What do you do?
Keep your self grounded and connected!
Know that you do know the facts!
Today’s DoodleaDay by Royan Lee suggested that we create four bulleted lists– with doodled bullets.
What better list than one that grounds me to daily options that encourage connections and creativity?
On the left are things I usually do every day in some way. On the right, are evening doings with my best friend and husband of thirty years. We also start the day with coffee, cats, and breakfast, and I didn’t get that into my list– but that evening time helps us to understand our world and our place in it – together.
In the center of my DoodleaDay are two lists which are also very important to me:
- Discover, my version of “stop and smell the roses”
- Protect the Earth, especially since it’s now up to us
An exciting thing happened today on my walk; the usual dry or trickling Fiddle Creek was flowing free again. The wind through the trees and the rushing of the water mean spring is here.
And while grounding myself in my Twitter PLN, I ran across this BookCreator tweet:
I have BookCreator on my iPad, but had never used it. What a great opportunity to be creative and join others in creating a book in a one hour Twitter Chat. What an awesome idea, Mark Anderson!
So step by step, people followed the tasks to create a book that will be collated by Mark and placed in iTunes! And now I know how to create both a pdf and an ePub using Book Creator. Here’s a pdf you can view of my part: Sheri’s BookCreator PDF. Thanks again, Mark Anderson!
I connected with others to collaborate on a project as part of my “Daily” list of hope.
How about making your own lists to follow for Daily, Evening, Discover, Protect to help you stay grounded? Or perhaps you support all the changes? You could make four lists too. Maybe, we’d find some commonalities. Maybe.
Head high, not too;
Hands open, outstretched.
Mind ready, confident.
Grounded, spirit sound.
Hope now renewed;
Force strong, it is.
Together, we stand.

Whew! I saw the to-do-list theme and thought it might be directed at me! But I love your lists.
Well, Scotty, you have your own lists 🙂 so I don’t need to add more! Glad you liked them, and that we do the “discover” and “evening” together. 🙂
I am sorry I have not been commenting, Sheri, but I have been reading your posts, which have been a stew pot of ideas, and art, and love.
Hi Kevin! You just are so busy with serious creative school fun, play, and work. I enjoy learning what you’ve been up to with #clmooc and #netnar [?] So glad you stopped by as I cook up this stew and serve it to help feed others’ ideas and dialogue. Thank you. Sheri
