Just because

So, I asked the hub to look at my blog to see Jack Skellington because I am going to carve one of our pumpkins with that face for Halloween JUST in case we get a trick or treater. And he saw I posted the poster for the Rally to restore sanity, so he asked whats this? And I told him and he said, so why did you post this, and I said, because I believe in its message and he said so why didn’t you write a big thing about it. and I said, because its political and its an art blog so he says, so why did you post it and I said because I believe in its message. Courage of your convictions. Well, its divisive, and I don’t want to alienate anyone who is interested in my art, I think the two party system is unproductive and a catalyst for hate and division and it has nothing to do with my art which isn’t political. So why did I post it. I needed to.

    I hear you…because I find myself posting something and removing it the next day, the need to say something is so immediate, then I have to consider those who come to view my art and how many might take offense, but we all know that each person has a different point of view, and knowing you, (if they do) surely they realize your intention is not to divide but to bring about change.
    I love your work Tricia, and I miss reading you…I guess I have to come back to LJ if I want to connect with the old gang again, I have been gone from there too long. Have a great day. ((((hugs)))) Gris

    thanks for the kind comment Gris XO

    most people left lj for facebook, my f list is less than half what it was and only half of those still post, I generally post the same things there that I do here…

    p.s. I’m still on LJ, and I haven’t abandoned it for FB, but I may for Tumblr! I don’t know if you’ve delved into it much, but if you want eyecandy, it’s a great spot for it!

    I have a tumblr, , maybe I’ll start using it!

    I didn’t “get it” at first…couldn’t figure out what the whoopti-do was about it…but when I revisited it (and started adding people) it clicked into place. I think what I like is the randomness of it.

    Anyhoo, let me know if you start using it! I’m on there at
    http://varietistmuse.tumblr.com/ (though a warning…I do post occasional nudes…nothing trashy/porno/overly graphic, but….)

    ooh terrified of your nudes! my virgin eyes!! Every nude I have ever seen you post on a public forum has been artistic and tastefully done, why wouldn’t I want to see that!

    I think that is what happened, I signed up for it cuz Jessamyn said she liked it and then I thought hmmm I dunno, I think sometimes I am lazy to learn new things and like what I’m familiar with, but I am going to give a try again!
