Color wars!

Leopold and I are sitting at the dining room table sorting through the pile of catalogs that have been building up. Leopold is looking at the Pendleton catalog.

Specifically, page 76. Grand Lodge Dinnerware.

Leopold: Isn't this dinnerware cool?

Artboy: Which?

Leopold: This. With the teepees on it.

Artboy: Yes. It's perfect...for when we open the summer camp on Lake Gitcheegoomie.

Leopold looks up with great expectation.

*Pause*

Artboy: We are not opening a summer camp on Lake Gitcheegoomie.

Leopold: Fine. *sigh*

I don't know how to read.

So, it's been an interesting several days where I've spent way more time living in the past than in the future. This morning I came to the most recent of life changing revelations that may or may not take hold and result in any real personal transformation.

But, these occasional Eat, Pray, Love moments are at least pleasantly distracting.

Not Eat, Pray, Love profitable mind you. But distracting.

Leopold and I were sitting in the backyard this morning when I shut my laptop to declare my latest.

Artboy: I've been thinking and I think that I need to take a page out of your book.

Leopold: I didn't think anyone was reading that book.

Artboy: Well. I've been looking at the pictures.
