Mopping up my thoughts

I started my Vivid Journaling class on Tuesday. It's technically a writing class, but I am making it into a drawing class as much as I can! My mop drawing came from the first 30 minutes of class. Today the sun is so bright and the temperature so warm it's hard to imagine that just a few days ago we felt like the rain would never stop and each day was an exercise in wresting with the wet.

I told my class instructor I finally decided to sign up for his class because I was intrigued by his name: Kendall Dudley. I figured he could go one of two ways with a name like that: grow up to drink fine wines and own a boat and wear sun bleached Nantucket red shorts, or join the Peace Corps and grow up to wear turquoise rings, stay curious, and teach interesting classes about exploring with writing and color.

What I want to know: do they still make those blue mops? A mop that was bright blue figures prominently in my childhood memories. Does anyone else remember those? Was it a Fuller Brush thing? Does Fuller Brush still exist? Mom?

  1. We still have a blue mop. Fuller is very much still around.
