Makeshift Love


Makeshift
Originally uploaded by Other Andrew.


Love. Something we all crave, yes? Makeshift or otherwise.

I snapped this pic of the top of a peeling advertising banner the other day, while out walking in Newtown. I really like the textures, the mixture of fonts and the way the two words work together. Love feels kind of makeshift a lot of the time, don't you think? Sort of cobbled together and kept going with string, tape and good intentions.

Is there a correlation between "makeshift love" and "clit tingler"? I'm just curious if this is a theme series with a stunning revelation in ACT Three.

Hah! Maybe so, I hadn't thought of any correlation, but know you mention it... :) The clit tingler could possibly pass for a very makeshift kind of 'love', yes? You could probably fall in love with it, if it did the job well enough.

Maybe you could fall in love with it if it did the job well enough. A whole lot less makeshift than the other maybe. It would wait at home every day, reliable, no expectation, no emotion but grow with you & support certain needs... lol.

The difficulty with some kinds of love it generates such strong emotion that can take you from the path of reality. What is real love anyway? I heard an old couple say they were still together because they "never fell out of love at the same time". I use to think that sounded sweet but i don't know now.

What truly feeds the spirit? loving yourself first then others...

Sounds like a fucking DREAM to me right now. Gimme cobbled. And give it to me jailhouse style.
