Star crossed love-seats and other home decór
It was the last day I was in Cancun, a city which is very close to my heart, or as close to my heart as you can be with high humidity. My family and I had decided to go shopping.... I was looking for CDs and VHSs in Spanish (so I could pretend I understood them and wow all the ladies). I wandered through an eclectic Pier-one-ish store that didn't import anything that wasn't from Mexico. I saw this sculpture on display and I knew we were meant to be. (I'm sure by buying it I answered some 5 peso bet about exactly how much junk American tourists will buy.)
I have never fallen in love, but I always imagined it would be something like seeing this sculpture. I was so taken by it... it's beauty... it's wit... it's individuality... it's spontaneity... (ooooh, pretty colours...) that there was nothing I wanted more than to spend the rest of my life in its spiky green company. The end of this month marks our 6 year anniversary. Thank you for sharing your life with me, strange orange thing with three feet and leaves!
