The Urge to Create (L'envie pour créer)

I was reading at  The View from Inside My Head blog  this evening, where Peter was saying "I need to make things and if I don't that need grows and niggles at me until I do." I know that is certainly true of me, too. 

Here in Soreze, I have been partly filling that need with blogging =o). Taking the pictures for the blog has gotten me out and about the village and beyond with my little digital camera in hand. Once pictures are dumped to computer there's a need to view, maybe to tweak, then upload to ye blogge and work at trying to get some layout of picture with words...

Cooking has long filled the "need to create urge" from a period in my life when there was neither time nor material to create in other ways. The habit of constructing an eye-pleasing and tasty salad learned during that time is almost more filling than the eating of the salad once it is done.  Making soup broth from leftover bones and vegetable scraps is a useful creative urge to have in these lean times.

The proposal at The View from Inside My Head is to post the "Make Something" challenge and see what happens, so here goes . . . . I will make something and pass it on to the first five people that comment on this post and agree to the following -

1. I make no guarantees that you will like what I make. Whatcha get is whatcha get.

2. What I create will be just for you, with love.

3. It'll be done this year (2009).

4. I will not give you any clue what it's going to be. It will be something made in the real world and not something cyber. It may be weird or beautiful. Or it may be monstrous and annoying. Heck, I might bake something for you and mail it to you. Who knows? Not you, that's for sure!

5. I reserve the right to do something different.

6. In return, all you need to do is:

7. Post this text on your blog and make 5 things for the first 5 to respond.

8. Send your mailing address - after I contact you.

I have half a notion to sign up on both pages, then I would get 10 presents... handmade presents!

Greedy Girl! Then she'd have to make 10, too!

Welllll.... maybe. Hmmmm.
