Adult Quote for Doodling Inspiration: 

Refuge: An Unnatural History of Family and Place

Terry Tempest Williams 

I pray to the birds.
I pray to the birds because
I believe they will carry the messages of my heart upward.
I pray to them because I believe in their existence,
the way their songs begin and end each day,
the invocations and benedictions of earth.
I pray to the birds because they remind me of what I love
rather than what I fear.
And at the end of my prayers,
they teach me how to listen.

Youth Poem for Doodling Inspiration:

"Now who is this knocking at Cottontail's door?"

Beatrix Potter

Now who is this knocking at Cottontail's door?
Tap tappit! Tap tappit!
She heard it before!
And when she peeps out
there is nobody there.
But a present of carrots
put down on the stair.
