In The Art of Creative Living, Thomas Kinkade writes about the importance of finding the creative source in ourselves. Creativity is part of my breathing, but during busy weeks I too easily starts hyperventilation and forget to take time to smell the tiny little bluebells along my path.
Given a weekend completely for myself helped me to find the track again. I was about to find my paintbox to do a little sketch last night, as I often do when I need a time out, when I realised that what I really wanted to do, was to cook a nice evening meal, for myself only. And cook it with what I had in the house already, no grocery shopping allowed!
Flipping through The Tuscan Sun Cookbook to let the photos send me some inspiration, I came to page 89 and Wild Mushroom Lasagne, remembered that I still have some chantarelles from last autumn in the freezer, found some fusilli instead of real lasagne pasta and walked out to the herb garden to pick the first thyme leaves.
A yummy smell started to filled the kitchen.....
and not long afterwards I could enjoy my solo meal.
Creativity is the way to go :-)
