Where are you going? What is in store for you in the milleu of the universe? Who/what is guiding you? Garden Spices Contributors take on all of the above in splendid form. Columnist, Marquetta LaRae is our Featured Image, and In The Positive Power of You: Directional Flow, she reminds us that we have to start with “awareness” of thought to promote our direction. Each Contributor takes us on the journey of the initiation of their arrows, where they pointed, and how they landed.
In Direction: Which Way is Up?, by Dr. Joyce Brown, and Thanks for Listening: Life Directions, by William Leroy Kennedy,we learn how community can impact one’s direction; while in Which Way Do I Go, Rev. Dr. Bobby Yarbrough navigates change. In Causal Direction, by Dr. Robert V. Gerard, reminds us we can take time to identify our direction, Barbara Hill reminds us to Follow Directions, Marlon S. Hayes shifts direction in The Course Shifted Again and Susan Peters cautions us to simply Stop and contemplate which way we need to go. When we need fresh air, Ute Bonn invites to her Sacred Sanctuary of animals and music telling us to Take Time to Change. Of course, we always welcome Art and Cuisine, but what happens when you are directing a museum of art?
In Direction in Creative Relationship, an Emergent Strategy , Christi Britten shares a perspective on what sustains the viability of a creative entity, like a museum. The proof in the pudding is Darshan Comes to Tuscumbia, a Tennessee Museum of Art sponsored festival, where we experience the depths of Indian art in America. We meet two contemporary Indian artists, Lhabdi Shah and Kuntal Patel.
Foundational Power: Art by Cecilia Lamptrey Botchway tickles our imagination and supports the power of women, and we explore urban city scapes with Jonathan Carter in Urban Exploration.
While we contemplate our direction, we might as well eat, and Mi Casa, Su Casa: Janis Gipson sits us down with a hearty quiche. Sugar Pearl’s Carla Renae has us cooking with her; this with Crawfish and Mac n’ Cheese and Steak (Rhianna) Rockefeller.
For dessert, An Artist Perspetcive: Mikel Elam, gives us dreams and compassion becoming our pathway, and Stephen Abban Junior guides our path with The Pacesetter. We journey forth.
