JUICY DELICIOUS LUSCIOUS MANGOS APR#26


Learning curves are curious little bends in Life... they can BE like a rollercoaster, taking me up up up, higher and higher, the World looking tiny from way up there, and then drop me in a blink, utterly breathtaking [and literally taking my breath away] and unnerving.

And so it goes with me. I think I understand a thing but I don't, I mean, I couldn't explain it, couldn't tell you how I got from start to done. And I will ask questions and re-watch YouTube and other how-to video options, over and over [and did I mention OVER?!] again... 

And then, like the rollercoaster's sudden surprise, I shoot down and only when I realise I am heading back up again can I see where I was, no clue where I am heading Now.

This is how it goes, making art. 
For me. 
Here. 
In the Wee Cottage. 
In September 2012.

It is good. Even if it's unnerving. Somedays...

I am grateful for the challenge, the gentle nudge, the idea which then takes its time making itself clear to ME. Well, somewhat clear...

JUICY. That was it. The rest, well, I could try to explain how I got there, here, but it would take more time and room and frankly, this is enough.

For ME...

Lovely, lovely juicy colors!
Life is often just a roller coaster ride.
Hang on tight and try not to scream too loudly, wet your pants, or lose your lunch. ;)

Great post, I really get where you're coming from. I love the colours of your picture, very juicy and when I had a closer look I saw the mangos in there. Got me wanting them now. Won't be long and they will be in season here.

I'm not a fan of rollercoasters Currie but sometimes we have no choice...we're just on it!
Fantastic gorgeous Mangoes with amazing colours.

I usually make mango smoothies once the season starts and boy are they juicy! I'm usually in need of a shower after preparing them.
But so delicious and well worth it!
Hmm...now when does the season start??? ;D
