No safe place
For a blank piece of paper.
My answer to David McMahon's question,
"How do you look at a blank sheet of paper?"
posed yesterday under the tongue-in-cheek heading
I stare it in the eye,
While I write on it,
And then shoot it.
Here's the link
to David's inspirational post:

I have used napkins to make bird lists when I have forgotten my notebook!ReplyDelete
My mother used to collect paper weights. I think some of them are quite valuable now. They are really beautiful. Anyway sometimes I use them to keep paper in its place but more often I just keep them for decoration.ReplyDelete
Maybe I should do a post on them.
Napkins are very docile,
ready to serve a multitude of purposes. ;-)
M.me L. Lama:
I am looking forward to your post about your mother's paper weights!
I own only one, the cut-glass one on my desk (a gift, from Tiffany). The one holding down the napkin is actually a sugar dispenser.
I like how you look at a blank piece of paper. ;-)ReplyDelete
You and me are SO alike.ReplyDelete
Thank you for the link.
And I loved your previous post. Here it was minus three degrees today!
Clint Eastwood style! :)ReplyDelete
I look at this little white sheets rather sternly, and then I scribble away. :-)
If only I had your output!
Midwinter, I can't even begin to imagine. ;-)
and the sure make my day! :-)
This is an "Off Topic Comment" but...I seem to have lost my knack for posting/commenting in 'Blog Land,' for a while. All I do lately, is put up a few photos, here and there. I didn't plan on it... It just happened.ReplyDelete
And since I don't want anyone to think I got *uppity* or anything, :-) I'm leaving this comment, to explain my absence.
I'm sure to be back in not too long. Can't keep a "Chatty Person" quiet, for too long. :-)
Thank you for the link Merisi!!!ReplyDelete
Have a great night!
Blank page? what blank page?
Blank sheets of paper are to be written on frequently and filled up with the prose of life, don't you agree?ReplyDelete
Blank pieces of paper are where I store thoughts when there's too much in my head OR where I allow my mind to wander when it's been a "too focused" kind of day....great doodles and word play appear!!....especially during staff meetings :)ReplyDelete
Great use for a blank surface. I draw on mine... (I have napkins tucked in my sketchbook).ReplyDelete
Brilliant response - but I do find napkins get all floppy about being written on! ;-)ReplyDelete
Hi there, have much enjoyed sharing in your photos, loved the napkin blog. Great little things, handily stored and ready to go for all sorts of uses - notes, phone numbers, checking the oil, impromptu picnics, emergency calls of nature in the wild.... the list goes on and on....ReplyDelete
and to future posts of yours!
Blank pages were way before our time, weren't they?
I could not agree more! ;-)))
That's what I imagined an artist like you would do.
I have kept many a piece of napkin over the years, albeit no great drawings, doodles it's for me. ;-)
Oh, the "Floppy Napkin Storage System" at least does not crash on you! ;-)
Napkins. Always handy.
Sometimes they even have more than one layer. ;-)
