I love your work and your writtings. I see it published in a book :) I love how you see life in everything. We must be very like minded :)

have a happy creative day today. I am going to follow your blog. Check out mine if you get a chance. I am also an artist.

Perhaps yes. Just because you say I am your best friend, it doesn't necessarily follow that you're my best friend too. Maybe I don't even know you...

anne artist said...

and if i see you or feel that i see you clearly enough to recognize what might be a connection, does that mean you see me at all?

what is it like to "meet" another person?

anne artist said...

thanks, deb, and good luck with your own creative eneavors.

it would be fun to see the cartoons in book form.

How about a picture of a dog that thinks he's a cat, meeting a cat that thinks he's a dog?

Aren't me rude if i ask if we have met before ?? Somebody will treat that particular someone as best friend ...when i guess you know that person well....Meet to me, have different meanings ...maybe suddenly in life your paths cross,and you get to know that person.... maybe you know that person well, and there are "dates" to see that person and is called meet.....and there is also meet where a need is fulfilled ....Qn:If i say you are my best friend, will you ask if we have met before ?? I will ask instead, if we are best friends could you lend me your shoulder to cry on, could you hug me because of who i am ...if i say you are my best friend, will you scratch your head and ignore me because you have forgotten me ??

'what have I done to make you think that I am?'

I would ask it in a very polite, non-offensive, kind of way.

If you say you are my best friend doesnt necessarily mean I am yours too, however I would appreciate the fact that you trust me and love me enough to call me your best friend, and you won't be a stranger since I have already appreciated soemthing in you, seen a tiny glimse of the true you.

if i regard you as a best friend it is because we have each listened to and cared about one another. it is about the give and take. i regard you as a best friend because i showed up in your life and you in mine.

so, if you ask me if we have met, then i would question what you mean? do you mean each day is new? or that you have forgotten and do not hear the echo?

or that you have become someone new who brings nothing to the conversation? not even a memory.

regarding the cat and the dog....first of all, i really like the question......

brings up the often used quote....."you see what you want to see......"

so maybe i am a picture of a friend of yours although i never met you before and you have yet to turn that page in the photo album.....

I love your art work...makes me miss my artistic side now that I am pursuing medicine...I guess i need to pull out that sketch book every now and again

It's an amazing blog. I'm a young teenage girl, so I don't understand everything, but I like most of your drawings.

anne artist said...

yes! and then when your art side says to you, you are my best friend......your reply won't be........have we met before????

anne artist said...

kaylie......not understanding, or thinking that you don't, opens doors to images those of use might think we get it......might not see at all!

The secret code: "The end of August Time is the start of the FALL." Again: "The end of August Time is the start of the FALL." Today's colour is yellow. Today's author is not the King in Yellow and he is not in Carcosa. The play must go on, maho maho.

anne artist said...

yes, there's that....and to see a sunset as if it is for the first time...

yet, there is a question lingering......if i see you for the first time, will you have been my friend?

does the start of the Fall end in Winter? what is Fall falling into?

I really like your work! I, too, am a big questioner of life and to see all of this just makes my heart melt.
Looking forward to see and reflect on more of your work around this blog.

If "I" say that, will "you" even consider saying, "Why not?" For all you know, "you" might even say that "We have been best friends for a long time." Wouldn't that be creepy?

so if you lose your memory, i do not have to lose my voice?
