My seventh plate of course has a Valentine’s Day theme. I’m not much for Valentine’s Day in general…even when I had a Valentine they were relatively uneventful. I might get a card or small gift, but that was only after reminding said Valentine the morning of so he had a chance to run to Target and grab whatever was left on the rack, whether it was my size or not. These days, watching young couples in love makes me want to vomit, but I’ve been working hard to try and change my view about this. One thing that has helped me greatly was listening to the lyrics of one of my favorite songs by my best boyfriend Dave Davies (not really my boyfriend but if he ever asked me to be I’d certainly say yes) of the Kinks. The song is called ‘Look Through Any Doorway’ and I love its message so much that I used the lyrics of the entire song in a ginormous painting I’m working on that hangs in my bedroom. That way, I’d see the message first thing every morning and remind me to open up my heart. For the plate, I just took one line from the song.
By the way....you should listen to the song. I think you’ll like it.
