Pretend art and other things celebrating my weirdness, I mean uniqueness
Wednesday, June 06, 2007
Went to the "Wedding of 07" on Friday night, or at least that's what we called it at Wheatland Mission. It was beautiful and didn't rain during the ceremony, even though it rained all day earlier. What is the thing that stands out the most in my mind? I have never seen a groom's smile so big, so much, all through the ceremony. Congratulations Ty and Leigh! (This is for when you get back. Of course you're not going to be reading my blog on your honeymoon. I know you have better things to do!)
What was another recurring theme last week? The church being the bride of Christ, of course. I was reading a book recommended by my friend, Nicole, called The Christian's Secret of a Happy Life earlier in the week and was at this part:
But imagine this bride beginning after a while to look back upon her low estate, and to be so overwhlemed by the retrospect as to feel unworthy of union with her husband, and to lose consequently the inward sense of this union. Who can doubt that very soon the old sense of working for wages would drive out the new sense of working for love, and in spirit the old name of "my master" would again take the place of the new name of "my husband"? We exclaim at the folly of such a course. But is not this just what happens to many Christians now? The servitude of duty takes the place of the service of love.
Oh yeah, I was also frustrated with my camera...Couldn't get the settings right or something.

There's only one way to grow while making art: take risks and allow yourself to make a lot of bad work, then look at it. I consider what is working well, what missed the mark or confused the reading, what needs to be adjusted on the next one. --Linda Arbuckle in The Penland Book of Ceramics
All great actions have been simple, and all great pictures are. --Ralph Waldo Emerson
