"I learned that you should feel when writing, not like Lord Byron on a mountain top, but like a child stringing beads in kindergarten - happy, absorbed and quietly putting one bead on after another." Brenda Ueland

A painting is a funny little thing,
It has colors and shapes but, like words, cannot sting,
It speaks without voices, touches or looks,
It’s essence cannot be copied or printed in a book,
The only way to feel what the colors try to convey,
Is to go up to It’s frame and listen to what It has to say,
And when you find that one painting,
Whose words can only be heard by you,
Then best hold on to It forever,
Because, In this world, paintings like that are few.
