I just finished a painting that’s been sitting on the floor of my office for about 3 months. I was excited at the beginning when I got the idea, stalled out for a while, then suddenly got inspired to finish it last week.
The idea of the word “and” appeals to me on so many different levels. It’s such a small word, full of so much potential. I think it could just about stand alone as a life philosophy. On the other hand, when you distill it down to one small character, “&”, it becomes beautiful on a simply visual level as well.
Perhaps I’m guilty of overthinking things just a tad. But then, that’s the whole idea of a blog, right? At the very least, I think it’s good to stop every once in a while and consider our words. “And” is such a more compelling word than “or”, don’t you think?
