I’m always pushing things I like on you , so today I thought for a change I’d show a cover that just does not work for me. To start with, I’m not a fan of pink, and this shot is pink if nothing else: pink clothes, pink scarf, pink flowers, pink background. But what really puzzles me is the strong lip color that clashes with the pink of the carnations. The lips look rather fake.
Maybe I’m letting my prejudice against pink affect my opinion. Maybe the printing process or the passage of time has led to an unfortunate color change. Maybe I’m just wrong!
Anyway, I wanted to say how much I’ve enjoyed my own blog this week, not because of my writing, but because of all the thought-provoking and insightful comments from all of you. I hate it when I feel like I’m talking to myself here, but this week the blog has really felt like a group conversation, and for that I’m very grateful. Your comments and feedback are always appreciated. And even if you don’t have time to comment, or can’t think of anything to say, you can make me feel loved by pressing the Like button that is located below each post, or by sending the post off to Twitter, Facebook or Google+.
