Is it art, or is it a pillow?

Does it hang on the wall or sit in the small of your back and bring you comfort at the end of a long day? I’ve intentionally placed my new pillow, “Full Bloom,” in a place of honor in the living room. Art can be both beautiful and functional. Strong and tender. Like an old love song.

Ella Fitzgerald was called both the “First Lady of Song and the “Queen of Jazz.” To listen to her music, it’s hard to believe that she was once turned down by bandleader Chick Webb because she was too ” gawky and unkempt”. Ella was a person who seized life and not only made it OK, but exceptional- over great adversity. Consider that next time you’re tempted to settle for less. Don’t!
