Love, Love, Love

John Lennon once said, "Love is the flower you've got to let grow". 

Hello once again from the wonderful world of Holly Cow.  This week's entry is all about LOVE.  What is love?  To define love is a task best left to philosophers, heavy thinkers, and people with more life experience than I have.   A quote from Paramahansa Yogananda (a pioneer of modern Yoga) : "To describe love is very difficult, for the same reason that words cannot fully describe the flavor of an orange. You have to taste the fruit to know its flavor. So with love."

Trying to define love is like trying to catch sunshine in a jar.  Everyone has their own interpretations of love and their own understanding of what love is.  Acceptance, patience, attraction...  Love is many things to many people, but it is what it is...  I'm just a simple cow, I don't have all of the answers to a question like "What Is Love?" so I'm not going to try to define it.  But I know it's a good thing. 

A lot of my friends have managed to capture thoughts and images that, in their own unique way, help give definition and meaning to "love".  Here are some of my favorite examples of "LOVE" designs by some of my favorite people.  I love you all!

Play With Your Food!

Hello Followers Of All Things Holly Cow!  I know it's not Thursday and I usually post on my blog on Thursdays, but I just couldn't wait to share these NEW designs with you, so today you get an extra helping of Holly Cow's World! 

Dan has been busy over at his Zazzle Shop adding a new category to the store.  "Fun Fruit" is the working category title, but I REALLy am trying to talk him into calling it "Play With Your Food" because I think it's funnier.  I want opinions.  The designs are colorful cartoon fruits and berries, all playful and fun and funny.  I want to see all kinds of cartoon food in this category, so a title change is needed.  Tell me what you think!

Here are some examples of the designs in the "Fun Fruit" (soon to be renamed!) category:

Well friends, as always, I appreciate your support of my blog.  Thak you for reading it, and thank you for your friendship! 
(NEW post on Thursday -- See you then!)
