This is day 28 in a 31 day series on creativity. Thanks for following along!
First of all, I must confess – this whole 31-day business has been harder than I thought. (All bloggers who have previously written a 31-day series – I hear you saying ‘Well, duh!’) I apologize that it hasn’t been 31 days in a row. But I’m getting there, and after this I promise to start posting about normal life things – as in, things other than my obsession with creativity.
Anyway, today I’ll let some photos do the talking… to declare my love for colour and the way it inspires creativity. So many times, I have found myself in the market, armed with a list… and as I wander, I am totally and completely smitten with colour. And texture and shape and freshness, of course… but it’s colour I first fall in love with. More often than not, my list remains in my pocket and I end up gathering whatever beautifully coloured veggies appeal to me that day.Lately cabbages and kale are inspiring me to cook comforting winter soups.
My kids thought the cabbages would be better used as bowling balls - which is, I’ll admit, quite a creative thing to do with them.
I like to make shopping lists, to plan my week of menus – but I am rarely able to stick to the plan… because I so deeply love the creative aspect of cooking. It opens my eyes to the beauty and life that is all around.
