  • Love in the Time of Cholera

    In their youth, Florentino Ariza and Fermino Daza fall passionately in love. When Fermina eventually chooses to marry a wealthy, well-born doctor, Florentino is devastated, but he is a romantic. As he rises in his business career he whiles away the years in 622 affairs--yet he reserves his heart for Fermina. Her husband dies at last, and Florentino purposefully attends the funeral. Fifty years, nine months, and four days after he first declared his love for Fermina, he will do so again.

    This is the Year of the Pig (or more accurately the Boar) for sure, but pigs are a symbol of good luck in Switzerland and other areas of Europe. These are tiny little sugar pigs (about 1cm / 1/3 inch or so wide), flat on one side so they can lie flat on the top of cakes and such.

  • A picture a day for 2007

    One of my New Year's resolutions: draw or paint something every day, in analog.

    New Year's Day doesn't quite feel like the start of a new year, mainly because it's a holiday. I also usually wake up rather late, and slightly groggy. Not that I overindulge on the champagne or anything, but something about New Year's Eve makes me want to stay up way past my usual bedtime, even if it's just watching old movies.
