Mine today is about all the arts. Well, not all, but most of them.
And because I have 13 shots, I’ll divide them equally between (and add 2 because because thinking about not having them even would drive me crazy).
Field of Poppies by Monet
Because it reminds me of my childhood home.
The Accolade by E B Leighton
Because of the romance of it.
The School of Athens by Raphael
Because of everything it represents.
He’s good with everything he does, but this, this I can’t not stop and watch. He (and classical dancers in general) is what happens when you commit your body to harmony and control. Also, he comes from one town down from mine, but that’s neither here nor there.
Because yes, obviously.
I don’t care much for his songs, honestly, but the man could dance like it was nobody’s business. I would post a video but everything is blocked, so I had to be ok with a picture.

J R Ward
Everything she writes is so dark, and passionate, and hard in the best possible way.

Michelangelo’s La Pietá
I cried when I saw it, and I’m not a crier.
Nike of Samothrace
It’s what freedom looks like.
The Kiss by Auguste Rodin
