Welcome to Drib(ble)s & Drab(ble)s!
This is my playground. I have been writing life vignettes and illustrating little pictures for as long as I can remember. No matter what I do in life, I circle back to these two loves. I decided it was time to provide structure to these passions in the form of this blog. I do not know where they will lead me, so for now I am simply exploring and having fun.
Why Drib(ble)s & Drab(ble)s? An obvious play on ‘dribs and drabs’ to remind myself not to get too serious and carried away. To simply write and illustrate as spirit moves me. More play expanding upon dribs to dribbles for my art.
Drabbles is a bit more specific. A drabble, according to the all knowing Wikipedia, is a short work of fiction of around one hundred words in length. The purpose of the drabble is brevity, testing the author’s ability to express interesting and meaningful ideas in a confined space.
This is an intellectual challenge that appeals to me, and I have always been a let’s get to the point type of gal. My drabbles, however, will be fact-ish rather than fiction. Point in time snapshots of my life. Events captured and released.
Perhaps my stories will resonate with you, perhaps my paintings. Maybe my posts will simply bring a smile to your face. Whatever the reason, I am blessed that you are here.
