Wrapped Emotions took a hiatus for Christmas and through January. Melody is back now and has a new "assignment."
This week (well, this month's) assignment, "A Map of My Heart."
Melody's words, "Knowing what you truly love is the key to loving how you live. A simple way to begin to know what you truly love is to gather beautiful images that speak to your soul. So, let's do just that."
She tasked us with gathering images from magazines that spoke to us. For whatever reason, it didn't matter, and then put them in a collage.
I sat down with some old magazines, and I just couldn't "do" it.
Sure, I started, but I found myself just settling on pictures. It seems they were all "food," "flowers," or "book" related. But I just wasn't happy with what I'd found. I felt like I was doing the project as she assigned, simply because I needed to "follow the rules."
But, as I sat there, I realized the map of my heart is right here, in my house. In my blog. It's my family.
I'm so lucky to be surrounded by beauty every day.
Now tell me, am I not the luckiest person that ever lived? Need more proof?
And now, this next bit is just to make my mom and dad feel old.
I got some new glasses today.
Here's the "old" part.
They're progressive lenses. Yep. I've got bifocals now.
