Announcing a new Drawing Challenge : Liminal, plus a little brain food
Yesterday I felt the liminality of the day. The air was thick with transition. It felt like I was standing on the threshold of seasonal change.
I thought about the liminality of every day and when that happens for me. The above image is one of about 60 but one which got into a project I did a few years ago, to construct and develop and publish a 24 hour 24 page zine. I’m imensly proud of that body of work , but I remember feeling the liminality contemplating the project. I suppose that’s where the breakthroughs come from, from that feeling of being on the edge, on the threshold of figuring things out.
I popped over to our Rose and decided to call a new drawing challenge: liminal. Won’t you join us in stepping over the threshold?
As usual, just leave me a comment with your blog address and I will link to everybody Friday Nov 6th, and we’ll all have a visit over the weekend.
In already are: Ariane, Melodye and Nadine.
And, in case you need some super extra brain power, here’s a quick and easy recipe for kale chips:
Go get some kale! Mine is from my garden. Easy as pie and cheep and chips to grow, but oh, so much better for you.
Kale contains powerful phytochemicals and antioxidants, and high amounts of vitamin C. Ounce for ounce, it contains more calcium than milk, and is more easily absorbed and more bioavailable.
Pick a few leaves, wash them, shake them around in a towel, or that salad spinner thing, to dry.
Tear the leafy bits off the hard stems, get a scant teaspoon of good olive oil and a bit of sea salt to your taste.
And spread the olive oil all over the leafy bits. Actually, the best way to do this is to pour the oil on your clean hands and toss the leaves with your oily hands. Then spread them on a baking tray (try not to crowd them), sprinkle a little salt over, and bake at 300F/150C/gas mark 2 for about 8 minutes.
Try one to make sure they’re delicious, put the rest into a bowl and immediately lose the chips to any hungry children that happen to be around. Oh well, repeat! 😀
