I’ve seen this so often from my kids, and it never ceases to amaze me. Example:”Mum ! I got dumped by Dominic today!” "Oh really, dear?""Yea… He didn’t want to share my crayons… He shared Heather’s instead.""Don’t worry, love, he’s what we call a two-timer. He’ll be back.""Oh! You mean like daddy!I lost my shit right there… I was laughing while a parent was on the other end of the phone.(To clarify: I work with kids! I don’t have my own… Yet.)

We are absolutely in love!

But I don’t think I’d actually want to hold my lover by his heart.  It’s all slippery and gooshy and what if I stick it with my fingernails and stuff comes out?

“It seems that the more I tried to make my life about the pursuit of art, the more money controlled my life: collecting unemployment insurance, the humiliation of borrowing money from friends and family, tossing and turning at night while trying to figure out how to pay the rent. To survive I had to work hard jobs and afterwards I’d feel too tired and too stressed to paint. It’s very hard to create under those circumstances. Creativity is a delicate process. Often times I wonder if I should have just pursued a career for the first half of my life, obtained some degree of financial security, and then transitioned into art.”
