Getting there... in a roundabout sort of way


Round and round whirr the cogs of my mind, grinding and processing a million thoughts, fragmenting images, formulating plans. My head hurts today. Perhaps I am not well or maybe it's just overloaded. I can't begin to write.

I opted for some artistic therapy and sought inspiration from a regular haunt. Mixed Media Monday bounced a 'round' theme. With a brain too tired for any clever, off-the-wall interpretation I just went literal. I got a round...

I drew round.
I printed round.
I cut round.
I painted round.
I collaged round.
I shaped round.
I baked round .
I found round.
I stuck round.
I rounded off...

In a roundabout way I ended up with this. It was fun. I feel a bit better now.
