Trying to think a different way, and still stay with the page idea.
Concentrating on what I call crossover, which has always been key to growth for me. That is considering one thing as potentially becoming like another, but of course not exactly. One thing taking on the traits of another yet still retaining some part of the original form. A trans-morphing in sympathy. A Small Journey based on two "places" at once.
Doodling on paper is really, to me, a different way of composing. Less oriented to one thing, and more of an automatic generation. A streaming. A storming. Often resulting in a chaotic arrangement of quick thoughts caught. There is no worry in it. It is not expected to be an end in itself (what if it was?) but usually a beginning, a release, and sometimes an excuse for a lack of refinement. And there is a safety in it. A try out.
When it is "transferred" to cloth it loses the spontaneity. It is then a design, chosen for a purpose. A refinement. Even if it looks the same.
Notes to self using "As".
Cloth as paper.
Paper as cloth
Digital as air.
Book as blanket, blanket as book
Digital as real.
Teaching as giving.
