The Shopping Cure

art thoughts copy

I go shopping every year on my birthday. I buy a lot of clothes. The next year, I hate all my clothes and I repeat. It’s a bad habit and it stopped this year! It went down like this:

Adam: You should buy new AG jeans this year for your birthday!

Me: Oh yeah! That’d be fun! Actually, can we go to the art store instead?

As I was adding tubes of acrylic paint to our cart, Adam observed that it took falling back in love with painting for me to stop spending all my money on clothes. Quite true, my love. Quite true.
