#98 Spring Swirls

I can't help but love patterns that involve all the colors of the rainbow and can still be sophisticated. These all hit the mark.  A marbleized paper that's less than $5 and is practically a piece of art.  A lamp that is like those bottles of colored sand that you make at a fair but don't know what to do with when you get them home (get a big bottle and make a lamp?? hmm...).  And a dress with the simplest cut, but is by no means boring!

 This is sort of a precursor of what is to come...


#97 A New Thing

My sister will often call me up and say, "Rissy, I wrote a new poem!"  And most of them are too good not to share with the rest of the world.  She is a bit shy about them, though, so, I suggested doing a piece every now & then featuring one of her poems.  This is one she wrote after I told her about a revelation I had with a friend that everywhere makes people want to kiss-- crowded museums, funerals, public restrooms... just everywhere.  My sister's poem makes me think, maybe it's not the place, after all.  People just want to kiss all the time.

It Doesn’t Matter Where
by Brianna K.

A gas station, old

paint chipping from pumps,

plastic covered food,

buzzing cooler for drinks

at a bar, on a block

of a New York street,

smoky air, loud drunks,

sad drunks, some not drunk at all

under neon sign

for a subway station,

rumble of approaching train,

bongos beat for change

from pockets of rushing people

catching the doors

revolving into a museum

of art lined walls,

sculptures magnificent and simple,

the gas station is framed on canvas

and they stare, seemingly mesmerized,

comfortable, in love as lip caresses lip

and they slip into each other

and they’re kissing in all these places.


#96 It Kind Of Feels Like Spring...Sort Of

I'm alive!!!  Kind of.  Spring is here technically (it still doesn't quite feel like spring in New York though) and I'm resolved to start blogging more often than once every 2 months.  I've got so many cool things stored up from blogging hibernation, so be prepared!

 Spring skies...LOVE!

Sky blue door moldings...LOVE!

 I LOVE CAKE.  Check out this cake shop & cake "accessories" shop...because, really, what is a cake without it's accessories, and what is spring without a lovely pastel iced cake? 

...Spring may not be everywhere yet, but love is and that's all that really matters.
