Hello from Coral Cottage South – breezy thoughts from the west coast of Florida.
I am enchanted by the idea, myth, folklore, fantasy of mermaids.
After I came home from my recent surgery the Animal Planet channel had a two-part special airing about mermaids. The show supposedly uncovered evidence that there is truth to the existence of some form of mermaids. I wasn’t feeling well enough to watch the shows, so I recorded them.
I admit I was lulled in to thinking there was some real proof and scientific evidence. I was pretty excited. Now before you go saying that was the drugs talking – I’m kind of embarrassed about my gullibility, but I have to admit there were no mind altering drugs involved.
I really fell for it. Hook, line and sinker – err get it?
Well, sort of. Any way the other day the morning news mentioned these shows and that it was all a hoax.
I have to just hit the delete button now and not waste my time.
For those of you out there that love the allure of mermaids and like to make purchases that support hand-made, indie artists, I am sharing these lovely mermaid inspired art pieces from my fellow artists at Boardwalk Artisans.
Magical, elusive mermaids.
Here is something we can all believe in – the allure of the fantasy and the way my fellow coastal artists express their interpretation of such fantasy.
Did any of you see the mermaid shows, and did you fall for it?
I’m off to catch a wave.
