You're allowed to drip, smear and play with color
without having any idea of what you'll do with it later.
You're allowed to alter a favorite book into a fancy new sketchbook.
You're allowed to throw a party, then throw the decorations into your collage pile . . .
your EVER GROWING collage pile.
You're allowed to paint with a new palette -
adding layers and marks and scratches onto canvas!
You're allowed to make your desk a place to play -
and make way "better" use of those stuffy old office supplies.
And you're allowed to rest, feet up, under piles of warm blankets, magazine in lap.
(Dogger can too!)
