Well, I'm sorry I haven't added anything here for so long, but I never thought anyone (including myself) was reading it. Then surprise, I checked in one day and found out that I have two followers! (thank you!).
So now I will have to start adding things again, and I will try to make them worth reading and following. Maybe if I get really used to this, I will download some wonderful photos of wonderful and other things too.
This is not a themed blog really. I'm going to try and make it about the back of things--things that make you wonder, creep in when you don't expect it, surprise you because they seem so new, or so strange, or so great.
I'll see what I can do.
For this entry, I'm really glad to say that I just stumbled upon someone else's blog lamenting the poor plight of l'Escargot vs. Watusi. I think Watusi is getting a fair slap in the face--not to diminish Alma Thomas, just the Hirshhorn and the White House. Enough about that.
2) Uck to Christmas. Already. This is a holiday I used to love a lot. A trip to the mall has already destroyed it for me this year. I am trying to be smart enough to figure out how to find it/celebrate it/ honor it in a quiet but still festive way. I think nature will have a lot to do with this. I know many people would say "try church". I would, but somehow, nature does it for me more.
3) a great photo I received from my daughter recently of a lilttle hermit crab--who had chosed a broken bottle top with the cap still on as his shell. Very soon I will post it on here for you to see.
4) The contemporary art market and $39,000,000.00 (hammer) for an Andy Warhol titled "Two hundred One Dollar Bills." Irony.
5) The back of the canvas--what is behind? Anything?
One more thing: "It is neither wealth nor splendor, but tranquility and occupation which give happiness."--Thomas Jefferson.
