Having reblogged Picture Book of Animals from 2013 the other day, I seem to have created a lot of confusion about me and my cataract operation! It was supposed to happen in April of that year but the hospital ballsed it up and the saga continues. I have to go through the whole process again, starting in September with a new eye examination.

In the meantime, I thought this old American Eye Salve advertisement (from The Graphics Fairy), doctored with some grungy textures with handwriting and music, might amuse us all!
If you have a problem with clowns or ventriloquist dolls, I suspect you might find this advert disturbing so look away!

I’m putting my cards on the table to tell you I’m in love with my latest piece, a burnt-out pier! I keep looking at it in Photoshop and giving a contented sigh or two!

She’s right. It’s something we have to do on social media if we are to get any attention. That said, I’m not feeling remotely uncomfortable telling you of my love on this occasion; I wonder why.

lovers
and
friends
I still
can
recall.
Some

dead
and
some are living…
In my life I loved them all.
~The BeaTles

Why do we love when it hurts so much to lose those we love?
How would you answer this question, dear readers?
My answer is as simple and as complex as love itself.
I don’t know for sure, but I think because it feels so amazing to love and be loved, also, we need each other and love connects in a way that nothing else can.

Love and loss haunt me these days.
I decided reading would offer it’s usual distraction.
As I read Love, Rosie aka Where Rainbows End by Cecelia Ahern(Hachette Books), I felt like I was watching a long Friends episode.
Beyond wanting to swat the characters for being such annoying goofs, I was left with a nagging feeling about love…
