Do not fall in love with people like me.
I will take you to museums, and parks, and monuments,
and kiss you in every beautiful place,
so that you can never go back to them
without tasting me like blood in your mouth.
I will destroy you in the most beautiful way possible.
And when I leave you will finally understand,
why storms are named after people.

Mark Gertler (1891-1939) was a British painter of figure subjects, portraits and still-life. His early life and his relationship with Dora Carrington were the inspiration for Gilbert Cannan’s novel Mendel. (Wikipedia)

I don't know why but I hope you like Sufjan and his music; I don't know why this is but perhaps because, like him, you both seem like precious cinnamon rolls which really are too good for this world. this isn't really a verifiable fact because of tumblr and the seas and movements of the planets being particularly vague at the moment but there you go, I suppose. also, Twombly is pretty good; Lucien Freud has good brush strokes; this message had promise but I rambled. peace.

Sufjan is alright. I can’t listen to him all the time. Makes me sluggish. He’s also I think too sentimental for me at times. Most of the time. Freud was pretty rotten towards the women in his life which I’m not really about so I don’t pay Freud more mind then I feel I should which ends up being very little. Sargent is the figurative painter that interests me most. Twombly always lifts my spirits. Thanks for the ramble.
