The mistress and the servant/1896, Félix Vallotton

The way I see it:

A sea searcher with uppity toes, dance on her feet and sea shells lying on the sea shore.Her servant holding her dainty body, as the mistress takes an elegant stance.


“The most beautiful people to be around are the ones with open minds. The ones who will tell you that sorrow is just as wonderful as bliss and that at any moment, you can be whoever you want to be and love whoever and whatever you want to love- whether it is religion or the same sex or drinking or pain. Without knowing it, these people are slowly changing the world.” – Source unknown

War in my mind

Jeanne Hébuterne, a French artist best known as the frequent subject and common-law wife of the artist Amedeo Modigliani. On 24 January 1920 Amedeo Modigliani died. Jeanne Hébuterne’s family brought her to their home but Jeanne, totally distraught, threw herself out of the fifth-floor apartment window the day after Modigliani’s death, killing herself and her unborn child.

In every moment, escaping my demons
While asleep, not quite
My little unspoken voice
Precious as my blood and veins, my thoughts are my twisted paradise

Finding the days too short for all the thoughts I want to think,
Can’t seem to live with or without them,
If only I could pen them all down, if only…

Oh my thoughts, they help me breathe easy
Yet I choke in them,
To feel fully alive, to feel my bones,
They are a sweet poison to my soul

Unreservedly wired but so unrestricted,
Freedom comes naturally in my unorthodox thoughts
They liberate my madness
Deep within, they evoke my humanity,
Leaving me in limbo

With every fleeting thought,
Trying to craft a meaning to my reality,
Orchestrating a dark, dangerous jungle in my                                                                   mind,
All I want is to be soulful, strange and wonderful.
