wander through life

Greetings out there in blogland, it's been another long season where my hands have not been inky, but dirty with earth from gardening.  Now that the weather has turned, I find myself anxious to return to my studio for creative fulfillment.  Today I am playing in SCS's color challenge to use the colors kraft, white, and green. The Card Positioning Systems sketch 242  fit well with my idea.  Credit for the doughnut image goes to Suat Eman Free Digital Photos.net.

'As you wander on through life,
Whatever be your goal,
Keep your eye upon the doughnut,
And not upon the hole'

Mayflower Coffee Shop, Chicago

I've had this wonderfully positive quip for awhile waiting for the perfect opportunity to use it. And how true it is...a positive message wrapped in yummy sweetness...can't you just close your eyes and pause just a moment...that yeasty smell filling your senses...warm, the perfect softness as you take a bite.  I don't know about you, but I need to remember to focus on all that is WHOLE, and true, and good.  And that, my friends will save me 600 calories, cause no one can eat just one!

Thanks so much for stopping by, if you found me again today.  I'd love to hear how you've been and especially how you are wandering through life.

Blessings,
Susan
