Thoughts From Places

Lots of thoughts, from lots of places.


This is a Thoughts from places of how Argentina lost the final of the world cup.

Other than starting to read Air Guitar, one of the main things I took from theartassignment's How To Learn About Contemporary Art was the reminder that even though I don’t live in London or NYC, there is still plenty of art being made around me. Also the idea of “art being made now” as opposed to in any particular style is something I’ll be ruminating on for a while.

As a first (free!) step to connecting with my IRL art community, I went to an art show at my local library. The parking lot was completely full, which I’ve never seen before. I was starting to get a little anxious and I almost just kept driving, but I found a parking spot on the street and reminded myself that I could leave whenever I wanted. 

I enjoyed myself after all. I wandered around the various displays (punch and chocolate desserts in hand), taking everything in and contemplating why I liked some pieces more than others. My favorite was an artist who used quilting techniques to create scenes of people (like a portrait, but made like a quilt? I really don’t know how to explain it). My grandmother and sister both quilt, but I’d never seen those techniques applied in such a different way. 

I wasn’t feeling brave enough that day to talk to the artists about their work, even though I’m sure they would’ve been perfectly nice and happy to talk about their work. But while I was there I did see a flyer about another (free!) show next month at a different branch of the library, so I have another chance.

This is how I’m celebrating Esther Day. What about you?


Happy Esther Day everyone. Remember to tell someone you love them today, someone who it might be difficult for you to say the words to. Today is about family, platonic love, and being grateful for that love and the time we have with them. 

Thanks you Esther for this reminder. Rest in awesome.


Happy Esther Day!


Happy Esther Day 2014! || Happy 20th Birthday, Esther Grace Earl!

Just be happy, and if you can’t be happy, do things that make you happy. Or do nothing with the people that make you happy.” 

-Esther in a letter she wrote at 14 to her 17 year old self. 


August 3rd is Esther Day

What Is Esther Day?

"When I think of the value that I appreciate and the value that I create, what matters to me most is how much I love people, and how much the people that I love love me."  -Hank Green

What Are Esthertines?
Tangible declarations of platonic and familial affection best served in person with an audible “I love you” and a personal note on the back.
