Want Some Visual Romance?

This week’s New Yorker Cover is beautifully romantic (you know, as opposed to making me feel guilty). Sometimes the New Yorker covers are poignantly romantic, too.

I love how art happens everywhere – it reminds me of the Glen Hansard’s acceptance speech for Best Original Song at the Oscars last year: “Make art, make art.” So if you needed inspiration today, make art! Write something. Don’t listen to anyone who tells you romance novels aren’t art – they are to me.

(This ends the transmission from the treacly Polly Anna-ish side of Sarah’s brain.)

    You go girl!  And we all need a little tap on the head every now and then, especially from the women in our lives.  I know I do.

    Okay, you all know I’m warped, but the first thought I had when I saw that cover was that he’s kissing the Alien.  That bun doesn’t translate so well into a silhouette.  I’m strange I know… he he

    So what is the cover story to go with the cover?

    Thank you for this because it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy.

    I just finished writing 458 new words for a piece of romance/erotica I’ve been working on, and writing has been tough going the past week or so.

    The second link reminded me of a friend and his wife. They met over books – each asked the other what they were reading. They discovered similar tastes, grew to love each other, and got married.

    I think that’s the nicest thing I’ve read/heard all day.  Thank you for the good karma! :)

    Ditto. And after the last few days I’ve had, I really need to smile. Thank you.

    Sarah. Warm and fuzzy. Who’d’ve thunk.

    Don’t worry, it’ll be our secret.
