Something New

From scratch. From the earth. From my kitchen. From my hands.

Always from my heart.

Do you ever feel a surge of creativity but have no outlet? Or perhaps many outlets but not enough time? I often think how complex this life is. My mind always wanders to the deeper more meaningful places where I wonder about the big questions such as, "why are we here, really, why am I here?" Thankfully I do find as I get older and less romantic about life it is easy to find the answers when I look at my son's face.

Ahhh, yes. Of course. This is why. 

Alright now.. come back down from your tangent.

What I'm trying to articulate is that there are so many things I want to do in this life. So many more skills to learn and experiences to drink in. The busier life gets the more I am reminded to take it slow. Make it simple. Don't over think it. When I do something I need to make it count and put my whole heart into it.

I really do think the world would be filled with so much more peace and love if we all just stopped and took some time to reconnect with our hands and create something. Not only create something but really appreciate the art of it.

{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.
