A drawing of a grid of simply drawn stick flowers. There are thirty-five in all in five rows of seven flowers.

The Bouquet

Set up a clean space at a flat work surface, and grab two things:

a favorite pen or marker. a stack of blank paper.

In the first attempts at this practice, it can be helpful to set a timer. Start with 5 minutes, then maybe longer. Eventually, the practice itself could become a timer.

The aim of the activity is to draw as many unique flowers as your imagination can create.

These flowers do not need to represent flowers that exist in this world.

These flowers are devoted to the one you have lost.
