New Feature:

As all of my loyal visitors know, I often stumble through periods of blog inactivity. Therefore, you may have taken note that I haven't posted in nearly a month. In an effort to remedy my dereliction to putting fingers to keyboard, I am introducing a new feature called Meeting Notes.

The story is this:
As part of my day job at Marlin I occasionally sit through a meeting. I say occasionally with a small sense of pride in that a Marlin meeting — at least for me — is always dead productive. But alas, I have the attention span of a gnat, and as such, I engage in doodling to keep my mind supple to absorb the substance of a meeting’s malay (I'm pretty sure I'm using malay wrong, and I'm trying not to infer malaise, so I say let alliteration reign).

In fact, doodling was (and maybe is) the possible subject matter of my thesis. I believe, and have seen some writing that supports my conclusions, that doodling helps a creative mind stay engaged in things like school lectures, management seminars and creative staff meetings.

So, from here on out, I will sprinkle my posts with doodles done on this end of a project meeting. To kick it off, get things going, or to simply let the other show drop, here's a salutation from our head of accounts:
