Sweet Little Something 2

October 11, 2013

This week’s Sweet Little Something is a little morsel from each of us that we would love your comments on. A photograph, a link, a poem…a tidbit of inspiration. Leave us a note or create a haiku for a photograph if it takes your fancy. Have a wonderful weekend!

From Hannah:

A haiku-able moment. B1 in spring in Vancouver.

From Ria:

This is one of those have-you-seen-this? things. Well, have you? This is Hong Yi, an artist of, it would seem, endless imagination. And she did this charming series with only food as a medium! And this one of birds made of flowers! And Mark Zuckerberg! Check her out at http://www.redhongyi.com too.

Obsessive tendencies. 4

October 5, 2013

I think I might have a problem. I looked at my pantry recently and realized, with fascination, that I own a metropolis of teas. Check it out. It’s like the opening scene to a film set in New York. But with tea. I had to give away all my tea when we moved which means I’ve gathered all of this in just a few months. I didn’t even notice it happening.

There are some things I just cannot seem to get enough of. Tea being one of them. Books too. Clearly I go a bit doolally for books, although I’m such a library go-er that I buy a lot less than I used to and love to give books away. [Do I sound like I am in recovery?] I won’t mention how without a stack of books near the bed I feel anxious…and then there’s my kids books buying craziness… and how I sometimes colour-arrange my collection. That’s not nuts at all. Right? I can reassure you that I am no neat freak (truly, I can be a piglet. No offence to swine.) but I just luuurve those books like babies. A metropolis of tea, a rainbow of books, a clutch of neuroses…

From Hannah:

Tales You Lose – a creative art project by Frankfurt-based Brazilian designer Andre Levy (aka zhion). Levy began painting over the figures on various international coins collected from his travels, transforming presidents and monarchs into pop culture icons.”

Imagine finding one of these in your handful of change. Haiku-able, anyone?
