Copernicus' Theory


Remember that post about failure? Yeah, well, I totally need a dose of my own medicine. Yesterday was discouraging. Today, still nothing encouraging...that sparkly New Years anticipatory feeling like something good is gonna happen and it's gonna be TIME...gone. I don't think that I'm gonna get calls for anything I've submitted to, which is alot. So last night, I decided to forget it all and CLEAN MY HOUSE.

That really does a body good. Getting off the compy for a while (I'm back on now, all good things must come to an end and all that) It felt good to make a list. Eat lunch with Emma. Do laundry. Vaccuum. (I'm lying now.)

But all in all,present dreams and hopes being left out of the equation, I've got plenty to be thankful for. It's a good life. Got this flyer and the smilies in the mail yesterday and thought I'd "cwaft" as Em likes to call it. It's nothing but a colorful reminder.

Oh and here's the funny for the day. We had Les Miserables in concert on while we were cleaning, ( Emma called it "Parmajaques" REFUSING with much fervor to call it anything else) and she was telling me that Daddy had told her that "dat guy in da bwack" was the main part of the story. She asked me just a minute ago if she was the main part of the world. Absent mindedly I said "yes" and she said "I bet Bo wishes he was the main part of the world." I said "Well he is the main part of his world." and she said
"Yes, but I'm the main part of the WHOLE WORLD."
"Oh, like Jean Val Jean?"
"Yes. Wike John Bow John."
And so are we all, my dear.

I love your cwaft project. I've only submitted 2 things, I guess I should submit some more stuff if I ever want to be published. One of these days you'll get a surprise phone call for a LO - I'm sure of it - you're too good not to.

One cannot truely appreciate the art of Sarah Heroman until one has sat with a picture and a blank piece of scrapping paper.
