Adventure:an exciting or remarkable experience
January is usually a quiet month for me, and that has been mostly true so far this year. I go to work, I come home, I run a few errands. I miss being outside on a sunny day. I put biobricks on the woodstove. I shovel a little bit.(I will be doing some of that later today.) My adventures have been with color and media and images and also vicariously as I watch TV and read.
If I went by this dictionary definition I could say I haven't had any adventures at all.
But I like the word adventure and I like to think that I have a little adventures every day. My adventures may not excite anyone but me, but I am not looking to excite the world.
But I ask myself, could I do something more?
Part of me thinks we all need a little winter to recharge and regroup. A little hibernation time to not do anything except sit on the couch and let plans and dreams form. Life is busy, even in this quiet month. With all the darkness and the cold it feel good just to sit inside and enjoy being a homebody. But part of me thinks I should just shake off my hibernation mode and go for IT. I'm not sure what IT is, but I'm sure I could find something.
So is it time to stir things up a bit? Find a winter adventure? Something that makes life a little less routine?
That's the idea behind my page today. I used a Gelli printed page and added torn up bits of a printed recipe and some printed tissue paper. Then I painted wooden spoons.I finished off the page with some foamy letters and also some stapled twine along the edges.
I hope you are having lots of adventures this month, (little or big) and join us over at Art Journal Journey. I am linking up to the current theme New Year-New Adventures.
And today the adventure is more snow. Augh!
I guess that's the type of adventure that should be expected in January. :)
Thanks for dropping by.
