    How far have we digressed...

    He just does whatever he wants without regard for the constitution or right and wrong or human life.

    Did you read about the homeowner in D.C. who sheltered 70 protesters in his house overnight until the curfew was over? And cops outside trying to lure them out like the mob in front of Lot’s house? The man gave them milk to wash their burning eyes, food, water. Let them charge their phones. Gave them his business cards so no one would say they’d broken in. These are the scraps that pass for good news these days and please god let it be true

    This was pretty neat too

    I had a friend.
    I thought we were good friends,
    we shared a lot, promised a lot.
    It’s difficult for me to accept but I guess I must, that they just didn’t mean it.
    When words and actions don’t match up, actions speak louder than words.
    It makes me sad.

    So I have decided to start a garden, I've never planted any type of vegetable garden but I think it's going to be fun...

    I have given my boy, and my wife project titles and jobs to do in respect to the garden... I'm simply Project Treasurey and Laborer...

    They are in charge of Project Design and Management and whatever they decide, that's the job they've been assigned, their department... Not my job or place, just Treasury and Labor...

    It keeps things simple for me and serves as an exercise in letting go of control and allowing them to make decisions... Even tho I guess I kinda did take over, I'm trying 😂

    I've been there - done that. It was very disheartening but I got over it after a few months. I'm glad she's out of my life. I don't need that insincerity ever again. My heart goes out to you <3

    not to be disrespectful, but I never really understood paintings like this:

    I'm asking myself... why this color in that box? why is that box bigger...?

    Lol, Mondrian.

    So... the precursor to abstract expressionism (he actually made up "Neoplasticism" to describe his work). He believed that this was the way to express ultimate beauty, to not get hung up on the form and to devolve everything to the three basic primary colors (yellow, blue, red) and thick black lines to describe (abstractly) the world.

    His work was really a precursor to not just abstract expressionism, but later minimalism efforts as well as color field painting (Rothko et.).

    Kinda interesting, but I can see how people would look at it and go "But, why??" Artists are weird.
    Haha, I'm not sure if I like his world that much... but he got away with it, and it was a long time ago during the war years I guess. So there probably wasn't much fruitful inspiration :S

    looks kind of ok on a pillow

    You know, it's pretty tame compared to a lot of the other weird stuff during the 1920s.. and then the 1960s and 1970s. :lol:

    Was talking with a couple relatives tonight. Sad to see so many of my extended family sucked into conspiracy theories and party talking points... it's led to personal slights and arguments, even between those I love. It's as if they've stopped thinking for themselves. We've lost the ability and/or are unwilling to think critically in these times of crisis.
