Sharing: And now I draw in colour.

Oh my goodness, the artwork!  It’s incredible.  This is a post by one of the first few bloggers I met when I had first discovered my spot on the Asperger’s/autism spectrum, and both her writing and her art are phenomenal!  Please, do check out her blog ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’™

The Misadventures of Mama Pineapple

Iโ€™m a little sporadic with my blog posts at the moment. Things have been busy.

Weโ€™re approaching Christmas, itโ€™s the end of a long and very difficult term at work, the kids are full-on, Iโ€™m tired, and whatnot. And the truth is, the past few months have been somewhat dark. That happens sometimes.

But something else has happened.

Iโ€™ve been drawing. More, and more, and more.

I love to write. But my occasional brain-body disconnect means that no matter how adept I am with words, I canโ€™t always summon them to the fore. Images flow from my mind to my hand to the paper far more readily.

Since I wrote my lament at the loss of my one true passion, Iโ€™ve been reclaiming it. And the funny thing is, even as my days have sometimes been very dark so far this autumn and winter, my drawings have been vividlyโ€ฆ

    1. I’m doing pretty good these days, even if I am moving a bit slower. My energy has gone down a lot since this time last year, but I do get my good spurts ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ.

    1. Thank you, Anna! Please don’t worry, my friend; I’m right there with you; I haven’t been on WP much lately, either ๐Ÿ˜˜. I know I was only gone for a week, over the New Year, but dang, it seems like I’m still playing catchup and haven’t caught up yet! Lol ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜‚. Thank you so much for reading when you do have the time, girl! I really appreciate it ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ž

        1. Awww thank you! That means a lot coming from you; yours is awesome!! I find myself giggling with a lot of what you’ve said, especially some of the posts I found around the late summer or early fall (?). You’ve got an excellent wit about you ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’—

          1. Thank you very much. Lately I haven’t had much time for writing as much as I want, but I hope I find some more time soon. Blogging is so much fun and so much to learn.

    1. Howdy! Please forgive me; I’m working backward through the comments in WP limbo ๐Ÿ˜‰ That’s so cool that you’re an artist! Art is a sort-of-“special interest” of mine; I find that both creating my own and appreciating others’ is amazingly calming, like an emotional satiety, like something that hits the spot. I’m looking forward to seeing yours! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’™

        1. Omg yes ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ I love abstract and native/primitive art too ๐Ÿ˜ Native American art, especially from the southwest, really sings to me ๐Ÿ˜ And surreal and darker surreal, etc. Digital art is really nice too! Impressionism is amazing as well. Also anything with bright, well-combined colors. I collect various images and save them to my computer lol ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ’—
