Modern Art

I have really been feeling my artistic side blossoming lately. I call this latest creation "Earbuds in a Closed Laptop." It's pretty in a way, but sickening in quite another. The contrast and lack of pixels and color can be depressing. The harsh reality of it all makes you question not only why, but how. I think I'm going to be staring at this for quite some time.

For now, I am tethered again.

On a happier artistic note, this is one of the most hilarious pictures we've seen in any book we've read. It is from a story called, "Where's Mary's Hat?" by Barroux. Mary the cow is looking for her hat, asking animal friend after animal friend if they've seen it. On the previous page she asks a stork if he's seen her hat. He tells her, "No, but if you hurry, you might ask the goldfish before he leaves on vacation."

See?! Maybe it doesn't have the effect on you it did on us, but it struck us with full funnybone force. So simple. So funny.


  1. What a beautiful piece of art!! Hopefully it will remain a one of a kind!!! :-)

  2. The picture of the goldfish reminds me of a book we have called 'Animals should definatly not wear clothing'. There is a picture of a hen who has laid an egg, but has pants on. It is the simplest picture but it makes me laugh every time.

  3. Marni, I have seen the picture of your laptop. I have to admit, when I was over the other night something inside me wanted to hide the laptop to see what would happen...I guess the teenager-who-wants-to-cause-problems in me will never leave.
