It is EMO friday. Truthfully, I think it's fine to be emotive any day of the week but when you've grown up half-Italian and your heart clutches about EVERYTHING including the plight of fictional characters (poor count of monte cristo in solitary confinement), every kidnapping or wrong doing you've ever heard about, etc. sometimes you need to limit your funk to one day a week.
There's a lot to be sad about in real life.
and when I feel this way, I don't leave the cottage. unless it's to go to our studio in the guthrie building AKA my conSOULation. It's two blocks from the Salt Lake library and I have stacks of books about Illuminated Manuscripts to pour over. And plenty of paint to pile on some canvas.
lovely view of the guthrie from slcPOMP
