My Life is like a Potluck Soup

My life is like a potluck soup. All my influences and inspirations thrown into the pot and stirred and stirred.  New Year’s day it was back to writing morning pages, back to the art journal, exploring the meanderings of the path.  Cleaning and organizing the studio, walks on the beach with dogs, meetings at the gallery, it’s been a busy 2+ days.  Later today I will stitch a bit, get back into the meditative rhythm.  Already the project list has my pot overflowing and we’ve barely breached 2016.  Some days it’s all veggie and healthy, some days it’s not.  Life right in all it’s creative messiness, a great big squirrel nest of chaos, but that’s the charm isn’t it so…

    Golly, Corrine. I got so much inspiration from this post. I am in awe of the collage you created, and your faith in your inner self. Letting nature in speaks to me, too. This is a great way to start the new year. Now where did I put those fairy shoes?

    My first thought was “Stone Soup” 🙂

    I know what you mean about the pot luck. That’s certainly my life! I feel like I am a little bit of everything and not enough of anything sometimes. But its a good mix and pot luck is usually tasty so I like it. You were brave to even walk along the river today-BRRRRRRR!

    Life is really a big mixed pot of soup, lovely mixture between good ,healthy, less good of not so healthy- but wonderful to dig into, and grap for the good and funny as much as we can . Good luck, Corrine, with all you are digging into 🙂 xox
