I [heart] when a plan comes together...

I woke up this morning almost having forgotten about the awesome giveaway over at Just Jules'. Not only is she giving away jules, but she's giving you pause for thought-and who can't use pause for thought?! I digress, so I turn on the computer (I'm lying-it was on all night...see: Real Simple there's a whole self-help section on mending your mendacious ways) Rewind, I strike a key and awaken my computer from sleep mode, begin reading blogs and am reminded of the giveaway. Posthaste, panic sets in, "Oh no, (actually, I was thinking, oh shit) do I still have time?" Top right corner of Jules' blog reads "Still Time". Woot! "Where is my favorite marker?" I turn right (I always turn right first, how about you?) then left and, what do I see? Pens, brushes and mini blinds casting the coolest shadow! (Hey Harriet hosts a weekly shadow shooters meme here.) Two memes with one post?! You bet! I just love when a plan comes together. Feel free to join in either of these fun finds, the fine hostesses would be thrilled to make your acquaintance.


Jules asked her readers to fill in the blank, one sentence on white paper in black ink. Ambling along these past 3.5 decades has proven one thing to be constant and that is change. I'm changing everyday; more and more I am getting farther away from the past yet further still from the future.

It's time to get back to work. Here are some of my tools basking in the morning sun, waiting for inspiration to strike. They sit patiently in hopes of being fondled and mussed in ink and paint and lacquer. Soon come, my tools, soon come.

Peace

Fabulous! I really like your "I am" as it is so true...we are so far from where we started yet we have no idea what the future holds. It is so great not to stand in one place but keep moving onward. Now I'm off to check out the shadow shot!

Lovely shot...your work spcae looks inviting. I hope that inspiration comes to you soon...it's the process that's so fascinating I find.

I love your tools and their shadows. Very nice indeed.

Wasn't sure which way to turn, left or right...but laughing all the way at your commentary anyway, you crack me up, but I do love the feel of your shadow, time to wake up and work...does it ever end...many more mile to travel.

Have a great Moms'Day!

Change is the only constant in my life so far. I used to be a little Christian girl named Wendy who was going to go into the Navy, never marry and never have kids. Now I'm a middle-aged Jewish woman named Cecile, who is interested in Buddhism, didn't have a career, married and has three (almost) grown children. If I'm not closer to where I'm going than where I've been, I can't imagine what other changes I'll make?! ; )

Nice shadow shot!

Great shadow shots! Love your workspace, looks like a good place to spend time working -- hope the inspiration returns soon! I have the same problem! Happy SSS!

Awesome photo and you've got me thinking. I am changing so much right now....

Just Jules said...

absolutely wonderful! this has been my favorite idea every (because it came together!) love the shadow pic! Will get it up soon

Hey Harriet said...

I always love your posts! Your writing style is so very entertaining! Do I look left or right first? I think I begin with looking down. And then if I discover that I haven't knocked to the ground what I'm looking for it will be to the left or right of me. I'm not sure that made a whole lotta sense... Oh well, if nothing else, it has inspired me to pick up all the crap laying on my floor ;D Have yourself a super Sunday!

I dread change in my life, but am so relieved each and every time I experience it! Great shadow shot, too, btw!
