But don’t you think, in some ways, that these images are just like the requisite fancy tablecloths in the RS Room? Or the vase of mauve-colored silk flowers on the corner of the RS piano? Or maybe they are like the little handouts given at the end of the lesson to stick on our bathroom mirrors? Or maybe they are the flowers painted on the clipboard that’s passed around in RS (because we women can’t have just a plain old clipboard–it needs to be pretty!).
Though I do appreciate the loveliness of a fresh floral bouquet, I am not one that finds RS table decor very meaningful. In fact, I find it rather meaningless and even showy. So then I have to wonder at my hypocrisy because I love the images that we use on our blog. So are these ‘pretty’ images just as frivolous as RS Room kitsch?
