I’m on season 3 of Criminal Minds (only a decade behind!) and in love with Penelope Garcia (Kirsten Vangsness) and Dr. Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler) like everyone else. Specifically: GARCIA’S STYLE. While the rest of her team looks like they’re perpetually on their way to a funeral (which…they sort of are?), Garcia wears florals, colorful glasses, and funky jewelry.

yayoi kusama on loving your art

I’m a big fan of love, and being in love, but one of my all-time fave quotes is about pouring yourself into your art, not someone else.

Looking back on some 40 years, I realize that I have been totally occupied with making my artworks that I simply did not have time to be in love. I am in love with my works.

Here’s another good quote of hers from elsewhere:

I fight pain, anxiety, and fear every day, and the only method I have found that relieves my illness is to keep creating art.
