A typical weekday of mine consists of white ceiling, computer screen, evening television, and the kitchen stove. As boring as it sounds, I won’t bore you with those plain images. Luckily, not all of my days are like that. I have been able to set up a new routine that I very much like to wake up to.
A Day of My Life – a day that I am surrounded by people of art and inspired by the art subject.
I like this day. It’s a ten hour long day. Exhausting, but ever lovely. It looks like this:
Lovely art building – tucked away
delish take-out dinner from a mom&pop restaurant
Instructor – an inspiring artist
pottery class – a bowl I made
Class room – viewing samples
Flipping Book- another Art subject
another Art Building Court Yard
Flowers. I adore them, obsess about them, and could not live happily without them. Regardless their arrangements, farmed or wild; regardless their intended purposes, romance or friendly gestures; no matter their shapes, colors, origins, or varieties, flowers color our world with their beauties in majestic ways. Their delicacy and short life span reinforce a constant of life, temporality. That, life is beautiful but fragile and short.
Some people might believe that flowers are over-rated, but have you imagined what planet earth would be like without flowers and greeneries? I would guess that world looks something like Mars, Venus, or the Moon. Lifeless and bland.
I prefer it here on earth, where the flowers bloom, spent in a matter of days but they always come to bloom again. To keep me re-newed.
Arlene Wright-Correll wrote ”when words escape, flowers speak. While they may not last as long as diamonds, flowers are forever. We associate flower with the special times of our lives. Birthdays, marriages, farewells…No occasion goes without the fragrance of flowers.”
It is especially true when she further said “when we wish to convey passion, respect, congratulations, or apology to the people most precious to us, only flowers will do.”
