Linda's assignment was pretty cool this week: Come up with two things or people that are somehow connected and yet, are independent of each other. That was my take. Thankfully, there has been only one thing (or one person I should say) on my mind since last night. The two objects below are so different from each other, one might say they couldn't possibly be connected:
Trish gave me the idea for the stamp design from her earlier post this week. The fruit and bowl represent Africa, which is where the bowl came from. The paint is what I've been doing today in one of the upstairs bedrooms. Both of these things are connected to me because they represent two things I wish I was doing with Mike right now. Sometimes all you want to do is be with the person you love and do normal things, like paint a room, do laundry, watch a TV show. Other times, you want to share your adventures, like going to Africa, traveling, discovering something new. Either way, Mike is the only person I would like to do those things with, the normal things, the difficult things, the adventures and the trials. If we did them together, it would all, the good and the bad, be worth it. Mike: I love you. And that is the connection between those two pictures .
