Life is a Workshop

“Life is a workshop; the crafting of our soul is our own work to do. We are all pieces of creation, of clay, into which we are asked to breathe life. It is ours to work that clay.”
~ Dee Dee Risher in The Soulmaking Room

knead 2Work that clay…

Not, take that clay to the gym and work up a good lather.
Press, Pull,
Twist, Lift,
That’s designed to work out.
Squeeze every ounce
into the juice glass to be consumed.

Work that clay…

Meant to work something in.
Blend, Knead,
Roll, Shape,
To reach the consistency just right
for baking.

Broken that we might be given.


About wlebolt

Life comes at you fast. I like to catch it and toss it back. Or toss it up to see where it lands. I do my best thinking when I'm moving. And my best writing when I am tapping my foot to a beat no one else hears. Kinesthetic to the core.
