i♥minimalism

This morning while scrolling through the usual headlines, I came upon a sweet surprise:  Christina Aguilera bare-faced and more beautiful than ever.  Now hang on here, don’t get lost in the new window just yet.  Come back!  Let’s chat for a sec about minimalism as an artform.  Speaking again as if to my grandkids, allow me to provide a quick snapshot in answer to, first of all the question:  what is minimalism?1996-02-10_wm-1024x351

That is one illustrious example.  Here is a poetic example from my favorite poet of all time, whom I lovingly refer to as Papa Cummings.

This concludes your lesson in the art of minimalism.  Now go and check out Christina’s new look.  I hope you love it!

Published by Carma Chan

Carma is an American poet, photographer and author, who has published under her maiden name, Dillon, and now writes as Carma Chan to honor her Chinese stepdad. She has also published the Gramma Carmels Preschool Series of digital picture books. Born in 1958 in Los Angeles, she was raised with unconditional love by Ruth and John Chan of Utah from the age of six on and has dedicated her life to "Love, Joy, Peace & Jazzy Harmony." She shares Dr. King's dream. Besides the Saardu series, which is her way of coping with insanity and imagining "greater things than anyone ever taught me," she also writes about overcoming personal pain. For example, 10 Most Annoying Things People Say to NICU Parents (...when they're only trying to help!) "I'm not always serious," she adds, "Having a warped sense of humor is the best medicine! So my stuff is a bit whacked and layered."
