Welcome to week 2 of Sally Russick’s focusing on life series, all the details are on her blog the Studio Sublime. This week’s focus is the one word for 2013. I was excited to receive this prompt and to capture the word I had already chosen: MANIFEST. I’m defining that as the verb: to make stuff happen - to be the action that fills the gap from idea to fruition.
Here is one of my older pasta machines. Actually it was my very first. It still runs nicely although it has some pitting in the barrels. It is standing in at the moment since my regular machine is a bit out of whack and needs some tweaking. Taking apart, cleaning and in particular reassembling a pasta machine makes you want to be an octopus for just a few minutes. I’ve been avoiding the task but it needs to get done. I’ve lined up some new (but look at the rust!) stamps that are for a project I’m going to try to complete tonight (Friday) we shall see. In the background is a large format journal. It’s divided with plain, grid and lined sheet section of heavy weight paper and I have plans to use it thoroughly this year. I think I may create a plate for the front, in polymer, perhaps MANIFEST-O.
I’ll leave you with this little article sounds like good advice to help achieve some goals, or as they put it, “manifest anything”!
