selah.



You know, people think you’re this weird robot man who’s so annoying all the time, and you totally are. But then it’s like that movie Wall-E, at the end. You’re so full of love, and you can save a plant, and get fat people out of the floaty chairs.” -Penny, to Sheldon (The Big Bang Theory)


This movie needs to happen to me.....soon.



Coping with despair, knowing you're not there 
Ashamed to just admit I've been a fool  
So I blame it on the sun 
Run away from everyone
Hoping to escape this ridicule  

 
Trapped in misery  
Wrapped so miserably  
And his deception I wear it like a skin
Dying to maintain  
While I keep trying to explain  
A heart that never loved me to begin with 
Oh, I'm such a mess
I have no choice but to confess 
That I have been desperately trying to belong.....


Um, Anthony Kiedis?  
What happened to you being cool?  
I'm going to ignore the child molester/magician haircut 
& mustache you're sporting and instead focus on 
the WHAT THE FUCK moment you're having with your shirt.
Seriously.  I want to punch you square in the face right now. 



I've been so focused on taking care of everyone
else that I have neglected who I am.  
I need to get back to me for a change.  
I need to dress up, go to a bar, have some drinks, and dance until all I can feel is pure abandon.  
I miss that feeling.

Paul Villinski Art

You may be thinking that I have a strange fascination with Gossip Girl but really....I don't.  Okay, maybe a little, but between the fashion and the interior design, it's "creative crack" for me.  I'm on the constant search for creative inspiration.  I have this need to create....

Anyway, I was watching one night & saw the most amazing butterfly wall behind Serena's (Blake Lively) bed from her room at Blair's house. I had to do some digging and find out more about it.  I have been searching since that episode and didn't have a lot of luck but today I finally found some info on the symphony of butterflies that covered the wall so beautifully.

Yes, I have become very passionate about these lovely creatures.  The man behind the butterflies is Paul Villinski.  He is an artist that makes them from old records, paper....even crushed beer cans off the streets of New York.  I appreciate his use of natural & found objects, the re-purposing of items once discarded.  I'm amazed at how delicate and fluid they look when installed on a wall.  


This is where I first spotted them:


Here are some more images from Paul Villinski's website
 
 

There's a sort of madness to his artwork.  I gravitate to artwork that is a little chaotic, messy, but visually stunning.  What do you think about it?
