A Modern Mermaid Tale

We all know that relationships don’t always work out “happily ever after”. Evidently, this also holds true for mythical creatures, as you can see in this photo series by artist Anton Konashuk.

Beautiful, but a little bit heart breaking. You’d think giving up the sea for someone would be enough to keep them from passing out drunk while you cook dinner, even if the chain smoking got to be a bit much. Wait…is he passed out or did he die from second hand smoke? Is this a commentary about the dangers of smoking?  Actually, the biggest problem I have with her is that she left the poor cat. “Take the goldfish and leave the adorable kitty”, said no one ever. Then again, my priorities might be a bit off.

Face Plant

Although I’ve never truly experience a literal face plant, I am familiar with the accompanying feeling. At least once or twice a month, i’m just good like that.

This also reminds me a little of college. One of the apartments I lived in was near some of the most popular bars around campus, and I saw quite a few literal interpretations of these frames. Except they usually weren’t wearing any shoes by that point.

Dream Weavers

This feature from How to Spend It entitled Dream Weavers is perfection. It is glaring bright and oppressively hot here right now, and the idea of napping safely surrounded by the dark cool water sounds wonderful, you know, if I wouldn’t drown and all.

I really miss having access to a pool. Sunburns and damaged hair color aside, I used to spend quite a bit of time, almost daily, in the water during the warmer months.
