Yes! I found this article in a recent newspaper, and promptly starting doodling on it as I read it. It basically says exactly what I've been saying for years: doodling helps focus your mind. I've been telling people for years, at meetings, classes, & workshops, that my compulsive doodling doesn't mean my mind is wandering and I'm not paying attention; conversely, it means I'm listening to every word. The doodling keeps my mind from wandering. Yippee for this article for putting my thoughts in writing! By the way, I've blogged about doodling before, and if you are interested, you can find some of those posts here.
And now another book to share, The House of East 88th Street by Bernard Wager.
