Loving Takes This Course

It’s staring me straight in the face so I have to say something about it. Yep, Valentine’s Day is this Saturday. And just last week I broke up with a man I had fallen deeply in love with. But it had to happen. And I am coping. The last few days I’ve been listening to Devendra Banhart’s fantastic cover of Forget About Him. Kath Bloom’s lyrics nail it. It also occurred to me…my divorce was signed into effect on Valentine’s Day of last year. At least I got closure cupcakes out of that. This year I’ve got nothing but heartache. But it’ll pass. As always music helps. To that end I’ve assembled my second annual single lady V-Day mix.

And hey, I found a few of those bright spots I was looking for. Getty Images invited me to be a contributor. And one of my photos is slated to appear in next month’s National Geographic Traveler. And recently I registered, to force myself to pull together a photography portfolio. Every little bit helps.

I don’t know if “the whole crazy world is going to be brand new” like Kath wrote, but I am going to be all right.

Bonus: I don’t know how I’ve managed to go this long without ever seeing a single episode of Robot Chicken. It makes no sense. “The program is a sketch comedy that parodies a number of pop culture conventions using stop motion animation of toys, action figures, dolls, and claymation” - which is exactly my sort of thing. Tangentially related, I’m looking forward to Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse.
Plus: Speaking of things that are my sort of thing…loving Peter Bjorn & John’s video for Nothing to Worry About. And the trailer for Fanboys made me snicker. And OH MAN, kittens! Inspired by kittens! Just what I needed.
And: Real world magic - ‘Arctic unicorns‘ in icy display. NARWHAL!
