Amazing Arrives in Many Forms
Speaking of painting, I am reading The Hare With Amber Eyes by Edmund De Waal, which was recommended to me by both my sisters and I keep having to stop and look up paintings. Some of the descriptions in the book are a poet's dream come true.
And I didn't think I was interested in Japanese art particularly. He makes it come alive as well the mania for it in France after Japan was opened up to Europe.
I am reading a quite beat up library copy. You know when you read a real book when it is dark out, you actually need to have a light on. Amazing!
