what a painting...thanks to my cuz!

i needed that.
I have always loved this iconic painting.
there are a few versions.
one is in the New York Manhatten Temple.
the impression that I had is to notice that
He is holding the black sheep.
the others will stay at his side,
but the little black sheep needs to be held onto.
He wants to keep us.
hmmmm.
so much to ponder.
i feel like the black sheep so often in life.
this means a lot to me.
and brings me comfort.
hope you don't mind me using it
to put a thought together.
to share...

I love Minerva Teichert's artwork! She is one of my favorite painters!

on marriage

'Will you, um, marry me?' I haven't seen you in weeks! You don't look happy or excited about the prospect of our marriage! You're asking me to give up my - my freedom, my joie de vivre for an institution that fails as often as it succeeds? And why should I marry you anyway? I mean, why do you wanna marry me? Besides some bourgeois desire to fulfill an ideal that society embeds in us from an early age to promote a consumer capitalist agenda?
