    We could maybe talk about how good life was “way back when” but I’m afraid I think I enjoy having an indoor FLUSHING toilet so how about picking something else?

    @ Dream Killer

    I have some edgy art in my home, but I laughed out loud when I read your comment.

    Mr. Swindle,
    Sometimes it’s easier to accept if you tell us what it’s called. I like it very much.
    I have a huge piece called Late Bloomers…I renamed it Arrested Development, that works around here. Another I have is called Journey, no need to rename that one. My life has been a wonderful one…even the bad times.

    Kindly see my comments on Dodes-Walters art in yesterday’s Lunch Break. –great bright colors, pleasing to the eye, but some objectivity–some MEANING–necessary. jd

      Having some editorial comment to one’s art isn’t necessary for it to be great. What “meaning” does Starry Starry Night or the Mona Lisa have? What meaning does Michelangelo’s David have? With much art the point is not to express a “meaning” but to provide an experience that is intangible.

        I kinda think the “inviting” smile of the Mona encapsulates human desire for bliss. Her smile looks blissful, so what brings us bliss? 🙂

    Come on Mr. Swindle…I like it. When I went to her web page and saw it is called Tsunami, I love it! There is some truth to you comment above…even though sometimes it’s…what the hell???
