I think it was the photos that finally did it. I mean no disrespect, but Oprah is a husky woman, so I don't understand why so many photos in her magazine continue to be of super thin, unhealthy looking women. I have a young daughter and understand how important body image can be. Doesn't she have enough power to change the photos that are taken for the articles in her magazine?
Then there are the super glossy shots of all of the stuff Oprah likes that costs a fortune. I admit some of the stuff is cool, but some of it is just not interesting. Do I really need a humanely cultivated angora hair drink coaster in magenta? A neon green gravy boat shaped like an owl? Or Moroccan lavender and coconut infused olive oil?
"Snap!" That was the sound of the last straw.
So I took a look at the other e-magazines I could choose. I had to consider where I am now and what I like looking at, the photos are very important since I don't get out much;). National Geographic was listed and I had to take a look, I remember loving the magazines as a child and looking through them at the library. I checked it out and National Geographic did not disappoint. It has amazing photos and a good variety of stories. Stories that feel like they matter.
So you see where this is going? I broke up with Oprah to go with National Geographic.
I was not going to tell anyone at first, but now I feel it might be important to let others know that it is OK to break up with Oprah.
So there you have it. No hard feelings Oprah.
On to tiny tree making. I made this new one last night with copper wire and moss green agate stone leaves.
I love the Moss Agate stone. I am still working on a bonsai prototype, but can't resist making a few trees with semi precious stone leaves. I will take better photos and share them in the next few days.
I hope your day is Tree-rific! (forgive me;).
