I have had collage on the brain lately, having come into a new supply of discarded magazines from work. Cutting out words the other day, I held the traditional phrase “Live Happily Ever After” in my hand. And realized for all the fairy tales and Disney movies, I’m not such a big believer in the existence of such thing. After all, bad and difficult things happen all the time, even in the best of moments. But cutting off those last two words “ever after” gives me a phrase I can much more easily subscribe to.
