It wasn’t a great stretch. I mean, I’ve done broke before. Plus each piece of furniture has necessitated a broke period; in many ways I’ve been lurching from one paycheck to another ever since coming back from Peace Corps.
But I’ve been thinking some more about Dao Hai Phong, my fave artist. Thinking about him led to looking for his paintings online. Looking for his paintings online led to falling in love with new paintings of his online. And falling in love with his new paintings led to my trying to distract myself by looking at other artists’ work. And that resulted in finding two new artists to love. Which of course led to my mental calculus of how much I make per month, and how I could save to buy a piece of art. Which led to me imagining being broke. Again.
It also led to me imagining the art in my apartment.
None of this led to my cleaning the apartment, though.
