I haven’t read this book yet, so I can’t vouch for it, but I am fascinated with the idea behind Praying in Color — a book that advocates plain old doodling as a form of prayer. I love it. I’ve done it before, but never quite intentionally. The great thing about doodling is how cathartic and freeflowing it is — it’s the same frame of mind in which I usually pray. Of course I try to pray the way many advocate, with purpose and pattern. But usually my prayers skip about from thought to thought or from feeling to feeling…just like a doodle. Here is a site about the book: www.prayingincolor.com
I plan to get a copy for myself and report more soon.
