Bizarre heart – #griefheart 73

Bizarre Heart
Bizarre Heart

Charles loved the bizarre. The odder it was, the better. From the jokes he told to the raps he wrote, he saw the world from a unique viewpoint. Which is what made him so special.

I have to wonder about the artist that created this. Nobody normal cooks up an iron pig with a heart, right? Just the sort of crazy, creative $#(+ Charles would invent if he happened to be into sculpture.  His suicide ended what would have been a most interesting journey. I miss that so much–his alternative view of the world.

My friend Melanie sent this to me with a, “I saw this and I thought of you” message. Now I’m not the only one seeing hearts everywhere!
