450.31 Choosing Different

Daily Note

Every day, a photograph, a poem.

Today my dinner napkins arrived. They are from Spoonflower and are printed from own art design.

[lThe artwork started out as a stretch– something new and in colors and a style not of my own liking. But I kept working and mixing and changing until it became something. Then I discovered with a few tweaks it could be part of the Spoonflower Rococo Design Challenge: I didn’t win, nor was I part of the top 100– but I am on page 2 of the [losers] list, which is amazing and I am pleasantly surprised!

I am also pleasantly surprised at how delightful the design actual is printed on the napkins. So my lesson is to keep trying and reworking and getting it into something. Because sometimes, it works.

Choosing Different

Learning new,

Choosing different—

Sometimes a different

path

Sometimes a different

style

Sometimes a new

way

Stretches your vision

Moves you to try

Expects you to not give up

And not give in

But keep going and

Sometimes this

fails

Sometimes this

works

Sometimes this

surprises

Choosing different—

Learning new.
