COVENANT

COVENANT

If you are happy, I will give you an apple,
if you are anxious, I will twist your arm,
and if you permit me, I will be glad to hold you
close to my heart forever and do you no harm.

If I am happy, will you give me an apple?
If I am anxious, you may twist my arm.
And if you would like to, I would like you to hold me
close to your heart forever and do me no harm.

This is a bargain, only two can make it.
This is a covenant offered with desperate calm,
it being uncertain that lovers can drive out demons
with the gift of an apple or the twist of an arm. 


-Tennessee Williams

I want to end the series with a painting by Jean-Léon Gérôme. One of my most favorite artist of all time.

My Inspirations I

This month I would like to share with you some of my favorite source of inspiration. I'm a very big fan of James Drapers work. Here is one of my favorite, titled 'Mourning For Icarus'
