This particular musical contraption began as a scribble. Jazz was playing in the distance. The pen took over from there. So, go ahead and invent! There is more to come with musical contraptions.
A simple scribble has so much potential. A scribble heading to the trash is a missed opportunity. My hope is that you begin to see scribbles from a different perspective. If you’d prefer not to play with it, give it to someone and pose a creative challenge. Maybe the scribble will become something you want to frame. Maybe it will become an heirloom.
Better yet … bring your art pad and pen to a loved one. Ask them to make a thoughtful scribble on each page. Observe as you both chuckle over the loved one’s creative, in the moment, process. Now you have the beginnings of an art collaboration to be treasured.
