‘life is a collage of events, really.’ – mohanlal

Standard

for those of you who’ve followed, read, or commented on my posts over the years

 I’ve finally put my finger on my ‘writing style’

it’s collage

and no surprise to anyone who knows me outside of the blogging world

it goes along with the creative outlets I’ve always enjoyed

making cards, books, and art

using pieces of things I’ve found, read, and collected in the world

it’s simply a matter of combining

images, thoughts, prose, quotes, poetry, music, and ideas

that generally don’t begin together

but once gathered

looked at in new ways

rearranged mixed and shuffled

like a puzzle with no absolute solution

suddenly seeming to belong together

to bring new meaning

when combined into a whole

my blog is the same

but the difference is

 rather than being made of anything concrete

 it’s abstract

it’s a mix of electronic media

 it can vanish into the ethernet at any time.

like all of life

it’s about making connections.

and having lived a while

I suppose I am a bit of a collage myself.

while you creep across the floor and think no one will notice style

the fall asleep by accident in spite of yourself

and all of your best efforts to not to style,

while wrapped up in a sweaty and twisted cocoon

made of your own body and bedding.

organization.

to do list – style a:

play with the ponies 1.

pack the cars. 2.

go to bed 3.

get in the car to go on vacation 4.

do fun things 5. 

a major contrast in approaches

both with the same desired outcome

two grandies

each with their own

style of list

and

way of getting ready 

and

organizing things

to go on a trip.

to do list – style b:

(loose translation):

‘go around and around in a twisty circle and get some stuff done

and not some other stuff and then hide for a while

and eat something you find outside

and then get in the car to go on vacation and do fun things.’

(i am more of a ‘b-list style’ of organizer. what about you – a or b?)

“the process and organization leading up to cooking the egg

can tell you a lot about the cook.”

fashion is not about clothes, it is about a look. – carine roitfeld

they say

clothes don’t make the man

but

a fashion-forward rotweiller

on a gray, rainy day

strolling among the humans

to raise money

for

type 1 diabetes research

sure shows some

style and class.

age and size are only numbers.

it’s the attitude you bring to clothes

that makes the difference.
