I’ve noticed that many successful blogs are built upon whimsy.
If you know me, or even if you’ve read some of these posts, I’m not very whimsical.
I would not, for example, bite the pattern of a heart into an apple and then cup it in my hands and take a photo of it to post here.
I don’t have any cute kids I can press into blogging service.
I could take photos of delicious food, or show you how I delicately dab butter onto my pastry dough with a pastry brush. If only I had a brush. And some dough.
I’m not obsessed with the color turquoise or white (which, when I was in school, was not even a color.)
I don’t even enjoy coffee, so I can’t whip up a late and draw a picture in the foam (another heart?) for you to enjoy with the caption “I love love”.
Hell, I don’t even live each day in the moment. Like a lot of humans, I’m usually living in the past or contemplating a fantastic, fanciful future.
So. Here. Here is the whimsy I can give – a drawing of an elephant driving a car that may or may not be a Mini Cooper convertible.
