I am a terrible romantic but the hype around Valentines day can get a bit much at times. So when I saw this work by Diane Victor which is part of the “Truth of Valentine” exhibition currently at Longstreet Art Lovers 1932– something in me just resonated with this. Probably because I tend to love so much and so deeply that it hurts.
Talking about hearts and emotions= I found this lovely quote in one of my Journals: (I think its written by Paul Zindell- but not 100% sure)
“Another peculiar misconception is that the heart is the seat of all emotions. If a sapiens is cruel he is called ‘heartless‘. They often love someone with ‘all their heart’. They know things ‘by heart’, they ‘lose heart’, and buy whatever ‘their heart desires’. One wonders what happens to these feelings, no matter how ‘heartfelt‘ when a transplant occurs.”
