I love words, don't you? I love inspirational words and quotes from famous and not so famous people. Several years ago I bought a wood coffee table at a second-hand store. It was bare wood. It looked as if someone had made it by hand, though only if you looked closely. What I loved most about the table was that it cost only $12.50. I figured at that great price, I could feel free to "mess it up" all I wanted and all I would have lost is a little more than a ten dollar bill. Well that table has seen several coats of paint now. My favorite was when I painted the legs light green and the top light purple; then I collected quotes and wrote them in paint-marker on the sides of it. I had inspirational quotes about life and love. I can't tell you how many people remarked on how great it was as they read the quotes all around it. I loved it too...but alas, I got tired of it. I painted over it with a new color and technique. I think I'm ready to give it another coat of paint and covering of insprational words. I think I'll start with this one;
"We are traditionally rather proud of ourselves for having slipped creative work in there between the domestic chores and obligations. I'm not sure we deserve such big A-pluses for that."
So I've decided to begin collecting a new batch of quotes. If you have one to share, let me know.
