your wish is my command

anyone who uses the phrase 'easy as taking candy from a baby' has never tried taking candy from a baby."
- unknown

as i stood waiting for an errant cloud to soften the shadows in the doorway, a young woman emerged from the building and introduced herself.
"i'm the artist," she said with visible pride. we shook hands; she unlocked her bicycle and headed off towards the amstel.
only when she was almost out of sight, and i read beyond the glitter, did i wish that i had asked her what on earth it MEANT.


  1. I don't know what it means either, but it sure feels like she's speaking to me. ;)

  2. its like people who talk about "sleeping like a baby" - awake every 2 hours screaming for food? :-)

  3. it don't take much time...
    i love to get lost a few seconds a day in your world of little experiences
    never felt the importance of colours so good as in your imagery
    happy sunday lynn (here in our country it's 'motherday', enjoy it too!)

  4. The beauty of art is what it means to YOU. If you found out what THEY meant, wouldn't you lose just a little bit of yourself?
