The Mona Lisa as pen holder
3 February 2009 3 Comments
The past couple weeks I’ve been suffering from dizzy spells on and off. After realizing this morning that the problem seems to be in my shoulder, I wandered into the massage parlor in downtown Siloam Springs to see if a few minutes in their chair would do me some good.
On the desk in the office rested the Mona Lisa, whose skullcap had been lopped off (a la House, M.D.) in order to accommodate a covey of pens. I immediately thought of Betty Spackman’s book A Profound Weakness: Christians and Kitsch — which I’m still working my way though — and captured an image of it with the trusty cameraphone.
