Day 6 Sacred Space- Orange

Orange. Door hinge.

Today I was going to write a silly poem about orange. The work has been consuming, so much to do, writing has taken a back seat to studio prep. I had a minute to write, thought I would write some funny little prose. I choose the day I was going to write about our orange walls. Did you know there is next to nothing that rhymes with orange...well except for “door hinge”. So here it goes.

We have 6 walls, most are orange.
We have painted everything now, even the door hinge(s)
Yellow, orange, blue and red
We snack on chips, keep ourselves fed.
Soon the floor and lighting will be complete,
We will dance, and have a “meet and greet“.
Creating a space to infuse community,
Love and empathy, purpose, love and unity.

No, It will likely never win a Pulitzer, but I had a chuckle while writing it and this entry took me less than 10 minutes. Priorities.

I am off to paint.

”What is your life's purpose?“ is the question in 12 days journal #208, inspired by my soon to be prize winning poem! You know you love it!


  1. Oh, man! You mean I actually have to have a PURPOSE??? I can't just BE? ROFL. Just kidding. I don't have a purpose, I don't think.

  2. Ha! That's funny that you ask about my life's purpose on my birthday and I couldn't come up with one! LMAO!!!
