Today, I received an email from Martha Stewart Living. Yes, go ahead and chuckle. I love Martha Stewart and her magazine “Martha Stewart Living”. I actually find that her posted recipees are simple to make and sometimes she has very unique ideas for crafts or ways to make things more special with just a little more than the usual effort.
Well, the title of this one made ME laugh:
“How to Throw a Rustic French Dinner”
While not the intention of the linked article, I immediately envisioned myself conservatively dressed sitting at a table of people I didn’t know how to talk to with a plate full of a French rustic style dinner in front of me. I could see myself in the vision just picking up the plate and throwing it as hard as I could. Not at anyone. Just throwing it. I certainly do not need Martha Stewart to instruct me on the right way to throw a plate of any kind of dinner. If I had any doubts, I could always hand it to my five year old daughter as she has no patience for dinner parties and a rather awesome left-arm pitch.
Just a little reminder not to take yourself so seriously. And, also, thinking something isn’t the same as doing it. So, allow a little mischief to creep in around all your good intentions when it comes to your imagination. Why not?
