A few words on romance

Romance is the thing you do because it makes you feel alive,

There are never guarantees in life and there aren’t in romance,

Romance is the thing you do because it makes someone else feel alive,

A life without romance can be a lonely, spiteful place,

Romance is the thing you do when your heart feels passion for something or someone

Denying romance is just another way of shutting out the thing you’re afraid of, or deserve,

Romance is this crazy mysterious, exhilarating, unpredictable thing,

That for some reason as adults we forget when we mature and become jaded by the world,

Romance is giving some simple gesture with no expectations in return; it is the feeling you get when you receive something with no expectations in return.

Romance does not revolve around sex, maybe a little bit about relationships and who knows if we all were a bit more romantic it might be a much nicer place.  Everyone young and old should be romantic, because without it we are nothing more then tired, heartless, cold, hard-headed, know it all, self entitled, snobby ass, parade pissers.

In my humble opinion it would be much better to romance then piss on someone’s parade.  But hey that’s just me…

And hopeless romantic = eternal optimist...

One guys opinion...

My figure study project - Britney

While in art school which was a study at home thing through the Art Academy University I was struck by how poor the images were that we were supposed to use for our painting and drawing regarding the human figure.  Having access to models and a studio in my home I constructed a giant rotating table on which I would have models pose in 8 different positions each.  As I photographed them I would turn the table ultimately photographing a 360 degree view of each pose.  I then created a DVD of each and sold them as study aids for art students and artists all over the world.

Too Bad (your're married)


I drive by your restaurant twice every day
and wish I had the courage to stop in and say
The things that needed to be,
my hope that you would see
The torment I spend everyday and how much I
I want you to know, but…


Then your sister said too bad, too bad your married.
She would be great for you!
Too bad because you seem sad and blue
You’re married too bad for you…


Finally getting brave enough to enter,
Telling a bad joke as I get near the counter
I saw your smiling face, I saw that curly hair
I’ve got to slow down, man, don’t show despair!
I want you to know, be open and straight but…


Then your sister said too bad, too bad you’re married.
She would be great for you!
Too bad because you seem sad and blue
You’re married too bad for you…


Seeing you in that white dress
Made my mind feel a little stressed
Trust me when I say that
your family was a bit distressed
You really should know that I see
A work of art, like when you’re smiling at me…


Then your sister said too bad, too bad you’re married.
She would be great for you!
Too bad because you seem sad and blue
You’re married too bad for you…


Realizing the way things are,
Kind of like being put in a jar
Giving you those photos that day
The thing you don’t know,
You make my knees wobble and sway.


That is when I thought to say…


Too bad I‘m married because I would be great for you,


Your sister said too bad, too bad your married
She would be great for you!

I say too bad because I am sad and blue

She said you’re married to bad for you…
