Passion and Potatoes!

What's been bugging you lately? For me, it filling my time with productive activities. Photography ... my writing ... social networking ... even trying to improve look of my blog! I am one of those people who have never been happy with my accomplishments

Its a mystery to me ... and actually, I love a good mystery. I know somewhere deep inside lies that gem. My heart still goes back to the "Tree of Life." I want to collect as many renditions of this symbol and fill every inch of the walls with paintings, tiles, textiles and other mediums of this symbol. This image was painted by my husband and I cherish deeply!

Some find their's early on and others later in life. I have a friend, in her 30's who started beekeeping and now its become a passion of her's!

I guess it all lies in passion. Finding it! Stumbling upon it! Taking hold of it and making it a part of your soul. Once in your soul, ALWAYS IN YOUR SOUL!

Simply Sacred Step: Take a moment. Think. Go back to your childhood ... what did you love to do? This is where it all starts!

Simple recipe: Not only do you need food for the soul ... but for that "bod" of your's!
