Today’s Exercise

Number Response

  • On a vertical page print the number of today’s date
  • Turn the page to the side
  • Try not to think of this as a number anymore but as marks, respond to the marks with line and colour

Mark making

  1. Set a timer for 5 minutes (I remembered – YAY!)
  2. Spend the 5 minutes responding to the marks on the page
    • Extend some lines
    • Make some lines dotted and some dashed
    • Add some spirals, squares, circles
    • Colour in some shapes
    • Add some intersecting lines
    • Some lines can be light and some dark

Reflections on the Exercise

  • I was tired this morning after a fitful night. I slept in and didn’t feel fully present, therefore, I gave myself permission to do this exercise at lunchtime. I liked taking a break midday!
