Contrary love

Update: I found these words by William Blake:
"Without Contraries is no progression. Attraction and Repulsion,
Reason and Energy, Love and Hate, are necessary to Human existence."
An art journal page I finished earlier this week. I am not ready for weekword yet - will hopefully post my interpretation of twilight by Sunday. I have been asked by Cindy of Quaint Handmade (Oh, I LOVE to discover new blogs in this weekword way!) to choose the new word and I will post this on Monday. In the meantime, have an amazing weekend. Be a little contrary! Following the rules and the expected notions can sometimes be quite, quite boring.

Hmmm I know of no other way to be...I wanted everyone to call me Mary at one point in my childhood- the only rhyme I felt comfortable with...Thank you for validating "contrary"...I feel almost acceptable and will now have to switch to be contrary to contrary...would that be "conservative"? well, that won't work...Love your page - the soft swilrs are a great touch.

Another super journal page - hope to see something special when your notebook from the giveaway arrives - and there is a little extra something in the parcel.....

oh how lovely - you want me to be contrary! i could say, that in my very own way, i have been so my whole adult life - never taking the easy road, never doing everything expected of me - but i still seem to care a bit what others do think - but i am getting over it!
have a great weekend!
