Oops. There it is!

Life is filled with so many interesting moments that I decided to create a regular conversation starter around the more entertaining observations. What’cha think?

How often do you stop and observe your surroundings?

Walking down a busy NYC street recently, I stopped to look at a lovely seating arrangement in the window of a high-end antique-auction house. Against the white fabric, was a dark spot. What is that? OMG. A large bug of some kind.

Laughing to myself, I went in to the store to find someone to share my observation. Surely, this could influence the bid price of the items. bug for blog

The staff member and I laughed at the situation. The large bug was a fat fly that had flown in from the street. The seating arrangement had already been sold. Both updates were positive.

The staff thanked me for taking the time to tell them of the bug and for taking the time to notice their window display.

The sad clown, painted by a family friend,
 made its’ way to our wall many years ago. While a sad clown is often associated with anger or unhappiness, our clown painting makes us smile every time we look at it……..reminding us not to take everything so literally. Our sad clown makes us smile because:sad clown

  • The earth tone paint colors further complimented by the bronze frame color provides warmth and approach-ability.
  • In our heads we look at the painting and think of our dear friend who painted the picture.
  • Looking at the oxymoron presented by a sad clown, we say to ourselves: “What-up clown : where’s the smile?”
