. . . gave my heart




I generally despise these made-up commercialized semi-holidays that do nothing but make people spend a lot of money on a lot of nonsense. A bit of advice to the lovelorn: make everyday Valentine's day. Having said that, I will climb down from my soapbox, and on the way down, I will have an attitude adjustment.


This is a photo I posted on this blog a couple of years ago. I had been working on some monoprints and Betsy and Joe had left these red plastic cupcake molds around the house. The two just seemed to fit together. . .


I had the best week. . . started some art but didn't finish anything and have nothing yet to show for my farting around, as Leslie Avon Miller would put it. I took some photocopies of some of my unfinished stuff and hung them up around my cubicle at work. Now I can look at these and try to figure out how to improve or complete them as I work on taxes or CD interest or talk on the phone. Sometimes the best ideas sneak up when I'm thinking peripherally.


Hugs and kisses x o x o x o blah blah blah . . . oops, bad attitude.

I am a fellow despiser of V-day. You are not alone.

Ah . . yes! The peripheral ideas! I wish I could bring them up when I want to! And I agree about commercialization of holidays. Best to you.

Great idea to have images lying around to catch your eye on the sly. I find the good ideas sneak up while I'm on the phone.

I'm not much for these kinds of holidays either. I think, like you, to need to remember to spread more love each and every day and not make money on it. Love should be free! Although I do like the idea of chocolate but then, I can have that any day of the year. Best to you!
