Autumn Is Here!

Perhaps, my favorite season, just for the mood swing of colors alone, birds migrating down south, pumpkin spice latte, thank you Starbucks I have my first one today, and lordly sunsets. Yes, let the kaleidoscope of colors begin. Autumn is here, welcome!

Daydreaming

IMG_5731

Florence, Italy

I want food, real food, delicious food, a variety of food. I want orange, orange juice, orange flour, orange cake, grapefruit, lemonade. I want fruits, various fruits, a variety of fruits, colored fruits. I want fresh vegetables, green leaves, many shades of hues. I want to solve the puzzle, caress the paint brush, pick from the domino table, feel my mouth full but right about now, I can only dream. I can only dream and pretend that I am at the supermarket, the aisles are filled of goodies and I running around, picking from it like a kid in a candy store. I can only because I can’t. I can’t because I am delirious. Yes, I am still hallucinating.

Inch A Little Closer

I was going from room to room because that’s what one does at a art show, trying to absorb as many pieces and snap as many pictures as I could, when I came across this interesting and somewhat deliciously “wacky” exhibit, which in all honestly would not make my living room wall, unless, perhaps, if offered a few Benjamin’s of big numbers and colored kind.

I found myself in the midst of a “gang” hovering around, trying to position themselves to better view this particular piece because everyone just wanted to see it. I did not get the frenzy for a second as I was still exploring.

I was still trying to situate myself when I saw what appeared to be a gigantic charming sterling silver medicine cabinet, big enough to make any wall scream, mounted on the wall surrounded by two security guards.

At the onset, I questioned the basis for the guards’ presence, Picasso it wasn’t but it became clear to me as I inched closer.

Wow, was the word of the moment. I couldn’t believe my eyes. I was still in absorbing it all. The piece was beautiful, intriguing, stunning behind words, fascinating, a conversation piece to say the least. I was stupefied but then again, I should not have, that was Art Basel after all where expect the unexpected is the norm.

Once I was done being dumbstruck, too many pills to count and the reason for the guards, I then moved to “I wonder how long it took the artist to put it all together” and to “what was the artist on?” What a question!

The pills did not appear to be glued. They seemed to have been painstakingly placed, carefully allocated, colors and all within an inch of each other, I am hoping once the cabinet was up.

There you have it. One beautiful idea. So, before you send that expire tablet packing off your medicine cabinet, think of what you can do with it, artistically there is. Just make sure it is locked and tucked away from prying eyes. That’s Art!
