Happy turtle (tortoise?) and I found it irresistible.
A few weeks ago, a real tortoise. Today, a facsimile. “This is not a tortoise.” (Thank you, Magritte!)
Someone asked me today why I write this blog. Hm…perhaps to remind myself that the visual world and the written word are of utmost importance. To me and to others.
It provides a form — and a forum? — that allows me to partake of the visual and the written. And to celebrate them.
It is also a lovely brief discipline. And it comforts me when my artistic output — the “show-able” kind — is at a low. It serves as a journal of a sort; it is not about what I do, but rather about how I respond to the world around me, mostly the ocean and other art forms.
