Please send good thoughts for our ♡ Johnny O. I haven’t heard from him in two weeks and I’m really worried.  He’s not picking up his phone or answering texts or email and hasn’t been seen as far as I know on Facebook since June 7th.  If anyone knows John, please have him call me.

Thank you.

Themes:

don't share but do drawDies Mercurrii

I beg your indulgence.  Today’s poem is a rare self-insert, but I cannot silence my heart’s keening. Some nights are like this.  Then, I surface. Hope returns.

Instead of monthly themes, we’ll be doing recurring weekly ones for the days when we don’t have any new creations to share from our homeless artists.  Recurring daily themes are: Monday – (fun)day – humor;  Tuesday – muse day (our biggest inspirations); Wednesday – dies Mercurii – Day of Mercury, mercurial day, water day (Japanese/Korean) “Water Star;” anything goes; Thursday – Thor, the gods, those we worship (God, god or otherwise); Friday – Frigg / Venus day, so LOVE; -or- TGIF what it really means.  Or bag all that and insert your theme idea here:

Gems 4.33 Valentine's Day 2018

 

The quote “Anything worth doing is worth doing slowly” is by Mae West.  In this photo (photographer unknown) is a display of the Mae West Lips Sofa,

“…a surrealist sculpture in the form of a sofa by Salvador Dalí.  It is made of wood and satin and “…was shaped in 1937 after the lips of actress Mae West, whom Dalí apparently found fascinating.”

“Edward James, a rich British patron of the Surrealists in the 1930s, originally commissioned this piece from Dalí. It is now part of the art collections at the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam, South Holland. Another version is on display at the Dalí Theatre and Museum in Figueres, Catalonia, Spain.

“In 1972, Italian designer group Studio 65 produced an updated version of Dalí’s Mae West Lips Sofa, called the Marilyn Bocca Sofa in honor of actress and sex symbol Marilyn Monroe. Unlike Dalí’s original work, the Marilyn Bocca Sofa has a more practical use in the home, and has become an icon of classic modern design.”

A bit of art history for Valentine’s Day, my favorite day of the year.  A day to celebrate the most powerful force on earth — what could be better?  This isn’t just a day for sweethearts. It’s a day to celebrate all the love in our lives. Love is what makes life worth living.

We love our connection to you, dear creative soul.  Happy Valentine’s Day and thank you for your love, support and friendship.
