Blue, in all its hues I think is the most universally appealing colour. Of course, the signature shade that many of us associate with immediately is Tiffany blue. I'm a great believer in luck. It has to be created and you have to contribute to its success but a little bit of sparkle won't hurt. I received a Tiffany's necklace with a horseshoe pendant for my birthday this year and though I usually reserve it for special occasions, I've been wearing it more often lately. Suffice to say, I need all the luck I can get at this moment. It's mildy terrifying but greatly exhilarating to know that the next ten days could signify a big change in the course of my life. Here's hoping it all goes well! -Bisous.

We walked a little, sat often and wrote on postcards that the museum provided as part of a project incorporating public participation. It was a happy day but the main point I'm circling back to was that the same Artworks attracted me for very different reasons. The colours, the vivid yellow in particular spoke to my warm contented emotions and the coarse brushstrokes evoked a sense of being unrestained, impulsive and carefree. The child in me was fulfilled.
When I look at it today, I see the greys, the blacks, the whites filling the canvas, providing a starker contrast. The circles and long lines like shimmering emotions on the brink of something big, quivering molecules just before boiling point. It fits the tension in my mind, the messiness, undercurrents of pain, the suppressed darkness. Its a fog I hope to emerge from but tell me this: what do you do when the easy way out is not possible and the hard way is just too hard? Do you come to a complete stop in paralysed fear or can you find enough within to push on?
