Relativity – Love, Art and Weather

An overnight minimum of 22.5 °C just before dawn feels deliciously cool after a maximum of 43.5.  Yet 22.5 (72.5°F) would seem like a pretty hot day in Arkansas which experienced a maximum of around 10 °C (50°F)!

I mention Arkansas only because writer Jay Maul sent me the cooling thought of cold, wet rain from there in response to yesterday’s post.  I’ve since discovered his blog and there is a heap of inspiration to be found – and lots for me to learn about blogging.  You might like to take a squiz at his blog writerjaymaul.

Whether you are for it, or against it, or neither, it’ll be hard to remain unaware that it is Valentine’s Day.  Having said that my DO (Dear One) remained unaware even after opening a hand painted card covered in hearts that I gave him first thing!

This is a favourite quote of mine on love and relativity:

“When you are courting a nice girl an hour seems like a second.  When you sit on a red-hot cinder a second seems like an hour.  That’s relativity.” ― Albert Einstein

I’m so lucky to love and to be loved.  It has not always been so and I remember well a time when I felt utterly alone and unloved.  To anyone who feels like that now it may help to remember that life evolves and brings some wonderful things into our lives too.  I think this quote also indicates that we have a role to play in our own happiness, which is an empowering thought.

“We are, each of us angels with only one wing; and we can only fly by embracing one another.” ― Luciano De Crescenzo

Here is a kiss for all of you from Gustav Klimt who was relatively ignored by the art establishment in his lifetime – but that has changed!

If you’d like to see more go to the Klimt Museum.

May your day be as good as it can be, or as you can make it.

    What a lovely post. With my predictive text off I can safely say that I used to have a print of ‘Der Kuss’ on my wall at university, when I was alone and unloved 🙂 On another wall in my room I had Paul Klee’s ‘With 2 Camels and a Donkey’ which I loved for many reasons but always felt an affinity with that sausage shaped donkey 🙂 Thanks for the memory lane trip xx
