The fiery sun of my passions
evaporates the love lakes of my
soul, clouds my thoughts and
rains you into existence. As I take
flights on bolts of lightning.
Claiming chaos as my concubine
and you as my me. I of the storm.
You of the sea. We of the moon.
Land of the free. What have I done
to deserve this?  Am I happy?

(Saul Williams)


Narcissus, Joan Miro.

Did you know that I love Paul Cezanne? He's my favorite artist. Ever. I love the art of Salvador Dali, too. But Cezanne... There's just something about his still-life(s), his apples and oranges, his bends in the road, his curtains, and (of course) his Mont Sainte-Victoire that touches me. I've been obsessed with Cezanne since my sophomore year at college, when I wrote a Humanities final paper on him and his paintings of the mountain in his life, which then became one of the mountains in my life as well. I wish I could see Mont Sainte-Victoire sometime in this lifetime and experience for myself what it is that he loved so much about it.

But you see, my favorite painting of his isn't one of those with Sainte-Victoire as its subject.
