Doodling has been one of my oldest habits, for sixty years I have scribbled
scratching surfaces, drawing on sand, wood, paper, the steam on windows.
When hands move without a conscious direction, a mindless concentration,
We all doodle, even a dot , a line, a circle, when the mind is absent, elsewhere,
hidden habits, inclinations, tendencies, like picking noses, chewing fingernails.
These are personal habits, inherent birthmarks that have therapeutic potential.
Doodling is a form of art that happens automatically, without apparent intention.
