Two Roads To Courage.


Growing up with quite a few cousins my age, when Christmas time came and we were all together, there was a little bit of gift envy between some of us.  This is exactly the way I felt when I saw a blog post from Tyler Riewer about a birthday gift he received.  It’s a suitcase – perfectly fitted for a bottle of bourbon and a set of brass knuckles. The outside says, “Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. Sack up.”  The inside offers, “The two roads to courage.”  They built/screenprinted the whole thing.  It’s incredible.  His friends are amazing.

Till Death Do Us Part.


Recently one of my friends brought to my attention the work of Kate Bauman, and the beautiful piece featured above and below.  Entitled “‘Til Death Do Us Part”, it takes the coveted symbol of the wedding ring and turns it into a symbol of violence.  No one is saying that commitment is wrong; that would be ridiculous.  But all too often I’ve seen people do stupid things for the worst reasons and those vows end up biting them in the ass eventually.  Perhaps Kate meant “‘Til Death Do Us Part” as a symbol of warning of two things: take your time, and choose wisely.
