Directionally Challenged

—I need a little direction right now.

First of all, I took this photograph yesterday while riding with my son. I noticed the yellow lines in the mirrors and the Which Way Photo Challenge instantly came to mind. I realize I’ve already used the “rear view mirror” idea, but I had to do it again because I really enjoy how the lines repeat, but they don’t line up.

One of the things I love about word and photo challenges is that they provide you with a little direction. The blank canvas isn’t quite so “empty,” because you’ve been given a prompt to draw upon.

I’m beginning the first project in my design class, and I’ll be designing a mug, a coffee bean package, and a bag for an imaginary partnership; between Starbucks and (INSERT IDEA HERE).

It can be a food, a company, a place, an event, a charity… or whatever it is that I dream up. It’s going to be a fun and challenging project, I’m sure of it. But, in sitting down to name this fictional partner…

I’m feeling directionally challenged.

That being said, I’m hoping that a prompt will get me moving. If you’re reading this… and a wild word or idea comes to mind… please share!

I’m super excited about this month long journey, but first I need to know which way to go…

Until later,
Happy Saturday…
Peace & Love!

Eclectic Thoughts

How does one decipher,

Mixed messages conveyed?

Go where there is no path,

But be careful not to stray.

Reach for the stars is guidance…

That often goes around,

But can this be achieved…

When keeping both feet on the ground?

Am I shooting for the moon…

If I aim to rise above the crowd?

Or is this evidence…

That my head is in the clouds?

Unraveling ancient proverbs,

Double edged, their meanings dual,

Will knowledge bring me power…

Or the wisdom of a fool?
