it’s official…i’m hooked. on chartreuse. i can’t get enough of it. i think of chartreuse when i am by myself. i start painting one thing chartreuse and suddenly it’s days later and things are painted chartreuse and i don’t remember any of it. i try to curb my use of the color chartreuse and i can for awhile, but almost in spite of myself, i will wear or paint or buy something chartreuse. sometimes when i’m enjoying the color chartreuse, i will think about the next thing i would like to see in chartreuse. i can go without chartreuse for periods of time and convince myself that i am not powerless over chartreuse. but before i know it i’m wearing a chartreuse linen shirt or staring at granny smith apples in the grocery store. i need a chartreuse support group. i need to meet everyday to discuss ways to turn my life and my will over to a different color. but for now i’m hooked. it’s taken over my life. there i said it. it’s also taken over my front door. for all the world to see. i’m not trying to hide it anymore.

this sweet little bear pin just makes me happy. i love his stance. the way he’s listing to stage left. the smiley look on his face. you might just see him as the inspiration for something on my site soon. dunno what. but he’s got my flibberti brain in a great big bear hug.
