I want to believe the best of people, but the current political climate has challenged that ability.  It as though the majority of people I already knew to have political leanings in one direction or the other have suddenly become extremists who are not only willing, but happy, to spout hate or accept the complete destruction of those that differ from them.  It scares me.  Then I ran across this quote… [These images] “are a way of seeing commonplace architecture with fresh eyes and discovering both the charm and the dark side of easily-ignored structures.”

I went in search of the images referenced by the quote. That’s how I happened across this work from today’s AAAD Artist of the Day, Ed Freeman. While that is completely backward of my normal process, it seems that his images quietly, innocently & unintentionally mimic their louder human counterparts. Intriguing.

“Ken” (photograph) by Emilyann Gachko

At least once per day, my husband and I have an interaction that results in my saying, “Never die. I can’t date again.”  It is usually some bizarre, embarrassing action or phrase or conversation that reveals a level of intimacy that feels abnormal.  We are a metaphorical three-legged monster –connected at the hip.  And while I am grateful, I can also recognize it for the freakish co-dependence that it is.

Don’t force me to change, but let me change, you know?
–Ken as interviewed by Emilyann Gachko

______________

Today’s AAAD Artist of the Day, Emilyann Gachko has taken on a sort of documentary process of the personalities of internet dating.  She puts a human, humane face on the people who find themselves looking for a life partner.  The project is just beginning, but I was intrigued enough to read every entry so far.  I still have no interest in dating again, but “Love, Me” has made me realize that people looking for love are just like me.  Shared experience and needs and desires build tolerance.  Tolerance is good.

My dog only eats dog treats at home.  When she’s at the dog sitter’s house, she will only take cat treats.  I don’t get it.  I once had a cat that would only limp when I watched her.  How odd to think that our perceived expectations alter even the behavior of our furry family.  This next Call wants to know about your favorite animal friends.  An opportunity with a little heart…

“I want a calm understanding to be felt, despite what may never be known. I want us to find more possibility in the intangible, and allow for it to come into its own.” —Tracie Cheng

______________

We grow up hearing “anything’s possible”. But is it really?  Possibilities vary from person to person.  Privilege aside, doesn’t the individual’s talents and tendencies shape what is truly possible?  I believe we find our possibilities where we look for them.  I struggle with faith but find the need for absolutes stifles creativity. The work of today’s AAAD Artist of the Day, Tracie Cheng suggests possibility in the intangible which requires faith in some form.  Maybe it is dichotomy, not contradiction.

300 miles from home, and we each wanted a salad on the go.  Google sent me in the direction of a grocery store on the next exit with a huge salad bar.  I came out with a traditional pile of mixed greens, spring peas, boiled eggs, carrots & cucumbers.  My husband came out with segregated little piles of beets, broccoli florets, roasted tomatoes & olives, a wonder of little bites not unlike antipasto.  Two schools of thought, equally valid.  This next Call simply requires a school.  Great exhibitions space…
