Legends, peaceful reading and contentment

- More from the Warhol Myths and Legends exhibit. Hmmm...myths or legends? Mickey Mouse, Howdy Doody, Santa and the Wicked Witch of the West.

- A bit of insomnia during the night and finally getting on the computer, knowing your blogs will be there waiting. And enjoying a half hour of reading before peacefully going off to bed again.

- Friend Kim is dreaming of spring by re-potting some plants, and mentioning the mess it made on email, goes on to say, "But now the plants are all very grateful (I like to think when they get into the new sized pot they stretch their roots and sigh with contentment.)"

Yes! I have always thought that about plants' roots too!

Sorry 'bout your insomnia. If I ever suffered from it, I'd go straight to blogs too! (I am sleeping surprisingly well these days!)

Jannie -

A little tummy ache woke me, but I called it insomnia. I sleep pretty well most of the time, too.

I read everyones blog when I can't sleep. It's nice to know that someone, somewhere in the world isn't sleeping either. :) Makes me feel less lonely.

I love the Wicked Witch! Especially hanging beside Santa (all you kiddies better be on the nice list or look out - lol!)

That's one thing I've enjoyed about the internet - it's available at times when we really need some distraction. Hope you are feeling better!

You know, my plants have been smiling at me all morning! :)

Joe -

I always imagine who might be up at the same time as me. It is less lonely that way.

Talon -

She's particularly wicked, huh? Yes - what in the heck did we do before the internet? Answer for me: read.

You happy re-potter, you!

I love Andy Warhol.

I like to think when they get into the new sized pot they stretch their roots and sigh with contentment.

I liked that expression. I'm sure they would sigh happily. It's a thought worth striving for.

Riot Kitty -

There will be a couple more - it's Andy Warhol week. :)

Anil -

Isn't that lovely? That is glorious language, isn't it? I love the imagery of the plants stretching their roots with contentment.

I would love to see that exhibit!

Mama Zen -

Come on down!

Sweet way of looking at plants! I bet they do say that.

What an interesting exhibit. I love going to ones where the art feels different. It's nice to be shaken out of one's comfort zone.

Meredith said...

That's so cute, what Kim said about the plants. (As you know, I love anthropomorphizing the members of the plant kingdom. ;)

Sorry to hear about the insomnia/tummy ache. I'm glad it worked out so you could sleep peacefully in the end!

I'm having trouble with Howdy Doody as a legend or a myth... but then my reasons call into question Mickey Mouse, too. Hmmm...

Lynn said...

Jewel -

Yes - being outside your comfort zone especially when it comes to artwork is pretty cool.

Meredith -

Legendary icons in entertainment? I'm think legends. :)

"N your little Dog TOTO too! Ah-ha, ha, ha!"
That's what popped into my head at the site of your pic! Warhol is so much fun
Only a half-hour to sleep again, isin't too bad. Tough when you need to rise early tho. I drink Chamomile tea at bedtime. Good for belly aches too-
Happy plants- good. Beats when they're gasping for water!

Snaggle -

I love the wizard of oz - I used to be terrified of the wicked witch of the west, but now think she was great fun - albeit melted at the end.

Chamomile tea - I forgot about that and do have some. Thank you for the reminder.
