Happy Spring! However, it is snowing outside at the moment, so it doesn't quite feel like Spring yet.
I am going crazy from this never ending Winter.
What's that Emily Dickinson quote? "A little madness in the Spring is even wholesome for the King." Quite right.
Have you ever seen the movie "The Secret"? Watch it sometime. I am a sucker for these types of things. It's basically about the law of attraction. (The law of attraction is the name given to the belief that "like attracts like" and that by focusing on positive or negative thoughts, one can bring about positive or negative results)
The movie itself isn't that mind blowing, but I support the premise. I think anything you focus on a regular basis is eventually going to come into fruition, whether those are positive or negative things, that's up to you. Hopefully they're positive things. Anyhow, it gave me an idea for a project. I want to do a drawing a week for a year based on this idea. 52 portraits. No rules other than they are going to be drawings of things I want for myself, for someone I know, the world... I had been toying around with this idea after I made a little doodle of a house for sale that I liked from the newspaper. I figure if some claim the law of attraction works by mere thought, what if one focused that energy into recreating those thoughts into some other form? A physical object like a work of art. I guess we'll see. Hopefully, Spring will truly be here by next time I write.
