I savor those thoughts.
I guess I've raised the bar to that which I must achieve. Forgive me if occasionally I just walk under it.
Hopefully today is not one of those days.
I got my creative juices going by checking in at EIM. The word of the week is "shell," (and there's this crazy coincidence with my research for "Royal"). I drew a zinchie, my official response, then I went on to drawing a twinchie using the pattern, "Sanibelle."

This is not a sea shell
Since I was working this through on Sunday in anticipation of EIM, I was amused when the Diva put forth a challenge for a labyrinth on Monday.
This is not a maze. (We did those at Twobytwo, silly. That is soooo last week).
There's a labyrinth not far from here. Every once in a while I think I'll go and actually "do" it. It sits all nicely groomed, like a zen garden and the path is marked with rocks. The thing of it is, it sits about 50 feet/15 meters, if that, from the road. There's traffic buzzing by at 50 mph/80 kmh.
I can't figure where to park my car.
I never stop. I hardly slow down. (Metaphor for life, yes?)
So, I wanted to channel the concept, to be mindful of the process, to slow down and "be" in the labyrinth.
It was an admirable attempt, and certainly deserves another try. I managed to focus and pay attention to what I was doing, working from the outside in and back out again. That's something!
