Some Days Your Spoonin & Some Days Your Forkin...


Today, I've been forkin...
Today, I've been reminding myself of who I am
& where I'm headed.
Today, I've been thinking about the forks in the road
& the paths one chooses to take & why.
Today I made a fork necklace for myself,
so if I ever get lost I can read it & remember.
Mark Twain's words wrap around me like a summer breeze...
'Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed
by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do.


Catch the Trade Winds in Your Sails
Explore
Create
Dream
Discover.'


I added the Create.


And just in case my compass ever gets totally broken,
today I did a little spoonin too.
1956
Long Beach
with a 1917 Vintage Souvenir Spoon handle from
Long Beach, CA.
My simple reminder of where I began.
I hope you had a Beautiful Sunday
Sweet Friends!

XOXO

Susie,Susie, Susie,
Your work gets more and more beautiful and creative all the time. I, too, love that Mark Twain quote, though sometimes it makes me a little sad. With fibromyalgia, I haven't been able to do all the things I thought I was going to do but I have learned to slow down, relax and love myself.
Keep on creating. You are making beautiful, meaningful jewelry!
Hugs,
Suz
