Just some thoughts...

Every day, as I write Poetiquejustis, I pray it will be a blessing to someone.
Today, I hope it is you.

An Intentional Onion

An original is a creation motivated by desire
Man Ray

My husband and I were talking about "intention"- that state of being where things actually get done.
He pointed out that 'intention' is the step beyond desire,
  -a step you cannot skip-
but  desire is just not enough
wishing...hoping...dreaming...all good starts, but they do not get you there

As the writer Sonya Levien said:
Good intentions are not enough- they never put an onion in the soup.

Life can be like a broth, you know.
Good for you...keeps you going...but not very imaginative

No one wants life to be just a simple broth

  Put an onion in your soup!

Dress it up....fill it with good things

OK...here is the recipe...
You add a pinch each of 

One A big dash of desire
 You got to put your heart in it!

And a pound of intention

Soup does not make itself. 
You got to want it

Today, life has RSVPd and is coming to dinner
So go, put an onion in your soup!

and that's poetiquejustis
