Check out these awesome found metal sculptures by artist Joe Pogan. Sprockets and nuts and bolts, oh my!
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways….
I mean, really. How wonderful was this woman?! I love her fearless voice, strong mind and independence. Her strength and her vulnerability and how she so honestly depicted both in her work. I love her haunting imagery and unapologetic bi-sexuality. I love that she drank and cursed as well as any man and I even love her unibrow. I love that she knew who she was and never lost sight of that. She said “I was born a bitch. I was born a painter.” Here are some of my favorites of hers…
|Self Portrait with Thorn Necklace|
|What the Water Gave Me|
|The Broken Spine|
|Self Portrait with Cropped Hair|
|Girl with Death Mask (She Plays Alone)|
|The Love Embrace of the Universe, the Earth (Mexico), Diego, Me and Senor Xolotl|
|Henry Ford Hospital|
|The Little Deer|
I found this on the blog Little Chief HoneyBee and thought it was too good not to share. I think we all need this reminder every now and then. Have you told yourself “I love you” lately? Did it friends. You deserve it. Xoxo, Jenna
Are you one of those people that can comfortably go out to eat at a restaurant by yourself or go to the movie theatre in happy solitude? I’ve met many who simply cannot. The thought of being seen dining alone or being surrounded by empty chairs at the movies seems so vulnerable, or boring, or pathetic to them, but I absolutely love it. Don’t get me wrong, I have a wonderful and funny husband, a lovely family and beautiful friends whose company I enjoy immensely, but I am so okay with just hanging out with myself as well. In fact, sometimes I just need it. I, for some reason, start to crave quiet moments to myself or little solitary adventures to either do nothing at all, make some art or go explore and try something new. Whether you are a seasoned loner or the complete opposite, I want to share with you one of my very favorite YouTube discoveries, How To Be Alone by (film maker) Andrea Dorfman and (singer/songwriter/poet) Tanya Davis. First of all, I love that someone put this out into the world. Secondly, it’s just really wonderful and well worth the 4 minutes and 35 seconds.
p.s. [and this is no lie…] As I was gushing to you how wonderful my husband is, he came walking through the door with roses. I forgot that today is the 21st and every month on this day he brings me flowers to celebrate our wedding day. See what I mean? Great guy who brings me flowers and encourages me to go on a mini holiday without him. Aaaaaaaand you can stop vomiting now. I’m done.
Do you have any tips for me as I start planning this adventure of mine? I hear New Mexico calling my name. 🙂
Things like this make me happy.
