Some idiot left this comment on the heart flower pattern entry:
“This heart design would translate very well into a textile. Either woven or surface design. I think you could easily lose the funny little bubble things that drift across the page – they are irritating. But the image is lovely.”
Holy crap! Are they serious?? They expect me to publish that comment with a link back to their blog? Yeah, right.
The comment is from a holistic healer (I use the term loosely) who has been apparently bringing peace and harmony to people psychologically for decades through Feng Shui. And part of their duty is to inform people of what’s wrong with their art? Gee, my blog has been commented on by God. Is that what a Feng Shui consultant does? Goes around playing god?
No doubt, I’m seeing my shadow self here. God knows I’ve offered patronizing opinions where they weren’t wanted many times in my life (ask my former friends the Snake Sisters). The seductive anonymity of the Web makes it really easy for everybody to do that. But I have to pass my Ingrate Crown to this person. This takes it all. They were trying to promote their business, which ironically has a heart in it’s name, too.
And yes, I do heart work and I wish the world was all love, peace and flower power, but if you come at me or mine like that, I will take you down. Full on banishing coming to you, baby.
At any rate, I’m giving that person a backlash instead of a backlink. I’m sending that negative energy right back to that, uh……person (I use the term loosely) three-fold. And I’m sure as hell not giving them a link, a mention back to their website, or even which sex they are, cause this is clearly a case of internet “social” marketing at it’s worst. “I love this work because it’s my passion,” they say on their website. Mmmm hmmm.
Well…I love the bubbles. That’s what I like the best about that piece of art. They stay.
Oh hey, you know what? I bet there are many offensive and wrong things about this blog entry, too. Well -expletive deleted- that!
