Practice What You Preach

As I was getting things started for dinner, this morning, it dawned on me that I was doing exactly what I wrote about in my article, ‘Art at the Speed of Life’ (Cloth, Paper, Scissors~July/Aug ’08). I do this so often, that it has become second nature. This is especially true during the school year. It was a crisp fall morning when I chauffeured my kids to school. I got home, finished my 2nd cup of coffee while I answered some email, and then thought chili sounded really good for dinner tonight. So out came the crock pot, and in went the ingredients. While the meat was browning, I decided that we needed to have the first pumpkin pie of the season. It is our families favorite, with lots of whipped cream of course:-) With this all done, the pie cooking in the oven I got all of my supplies ready for my next project and by the time the smell of pumpkin and spices filled the air, I was well immersed in my artwork, satisfied in knowing that dinner was taken care of.
