Playtime with Penny
16 x 20 oil on canvas
Meet Penny and her Piney, which is Penny's favorite toy. Piney is short for Pineapplesauras and if your not familiar with that critter it is a cross between a pineapple and a styracosaurus(dinosaurs). At one time Piney's parents spied this mail order toy on the side of a pineapple can and thought it was just the thing for their favorite girl. Long story short, this is Penny's go-to toy. See her happy little expression, that's pure passion,
Penny's go-to toy makes me wander into my childhood and wonder what was my go-to toy.
For the past several years I was in this horrible limbo, maybe you know it, what do I want to do when I grow up limbo. I searched, I pondered, I requested and I even took tests and classes. During my wandering years I had purchased Cheryl Richardson's self-care cards. A beautiful deck of cards with thought provoking topics. Each morning I would draw a card for my daily inspiration. I repeatedly, I mean repeatedly, would draw the Passion card which read "Resurrect a childhood dream, let your passion take flight". Each time I drew that card I would scratch my head and wondered what could that possibly be; I was totally blank.
So as things usually work for me, I figured it out later, much later. My Angels really had to hit me over the head with this one. My go-to toy was crayons, I would sit for hours and color pictures and not realize time had gone by, it was my play, it was my passion. What is your go-to toy?
