so...

I have been inspired by two pieces of art. One a poem and the other a painting. (I sound so refined with those sentences). I was perusing Indiana's art museum and came across this painting that made me sit and stare. I'm not sure if it was the cold weather or my emotional personality but I definitely cried looking at it. I was wearing my doubled up sweats, snow jacket and a beanie. I stood out in the museum, ha! But hey, art is for everyone!
This is The Yerres, Effect on Rain
by Gustave Caillebotte


 I decided to learn more about poetry and bought a 20th century poetry book. This is my favorite poem so far.



From the apparition

By Stephen Phillips

My dear love came to me,  and said:
'God gives me one hour's rest
To spend on earth again:
How shall we spend it best?

'Why, as of old,' I said; and so
We quarrelled, as of old:
But when I turned to make my peace,
That one short hour was told.
