Bathroom Fantasy

Ok, it’s time to come out and just say this… it’s about one of the magazines that’s hidden in the pile of reading material in my bathroom…

I enjoy reading Elle Décor …

So there it is, I’ve said it.
I don’t know how or why we started getting this magazine, it just started showing up… we are unmonied, fairly dirty behind the ears, and our vacuum cleaner hasn’t worked for over a year and my wife still hasn’t noticed.

I have to say, I’m not thumbing through these to read the articles. I enjoy leafing through the pages, fantasizing about the unobtainable in life. In this case, it’s about having a one of my pieces setting on a well dusted shelf or table top pictured in its gleaming pages or on a shelf sitting next to a book that no one has looked at.

Sigh…. Pure fantasy.
But I also know that if I actually achieved the unattainable and accidently found myself on these pages, I’d have to live up to the expectations that come along with that responsibility… consistent, steady, reliable, PRODUCTION.
Woof! It’s a good thing this is just a fantasy. I think I prefer the reality that I’m living. I thoroughly enjoy the studio life I have, but there’s a lot to be said for a good daydream…I think I'll just keep gluing my work onto it's front page.

I like looking at those mags too. I always see that furniture with the white upholstery or light colored rugs and carpets and think, "Who lives there? They must never get dirty. I'd have that stuff soiled with clay in about 2 seconds." It's just soooooo clean. I fantasize about being that clean and living in a light, spotless environment. Well, that may never happen.

People with messy houses are boring, boring neurotic people. And dumb.
