Your letter on Tuesday Love and Hope and Children's Books spoke to me in just the way I needed it to. I found love and hope in your letter, and beauty too. Beauty surrounds us, and if we let it, beauty will pull us into a tight embrace.
So Alison, I want to share with you some beauty I discovered during a recent visit to the Museum of Modern Art or MoMA.
The human body in all its forms...
|Pablo Picasso's Head of a Sleeping Woman|
The swirling dripping beauty of a night...
|Vincent van Gogh's Starry Night|
The beauty of a memory including all the jagged painful edges because those wounds led us to the path we travel today...
|I forgot to take a picture of the artist name plate and I couldn't find it in my searches. If you know it, please leave a comment.|
(It reminds me of a book in one of my favorite book and movie series.)
Beauty in all it's complexity even in times of violence and upheaval...
|Umberto Boccioni The City Rises|
A beautiful reflection...Look in the mirror, you'll find beauty too.
|Pablo Picasso's Girl Before a Mirror|
One of my most beautiful works in progress...
|A budding artist studying the 150 hundred year old sketch book of Edgar Degas|
Beauty surrounds us. May beauty embrace you too.
Where do you find beauty?
Sharing the writing love one letter at a time,
