Untitled A galactic star has no petals, but it does bloom. In depressing times, her smile dims, but she is still my moon. And yet, if I could lift her spirits, I would become her red balloon. And then, together we could drift in atmospheric bliss as paired clouds do in the fondest of sky blue. #divinity #philosophy #theosophy #film #movies #life #love #romanticism #relationships #firstsight #beautiful #lovely #desire #her #writing #writers #poetry #poem #park #smile #vulnerable #feel #grantpark Image: Zoe Kazan and Paul Dano in the 2012 film "Ruby Sparks

"Water, water, everywhere, And all the boards did shrink; Water, water, everywhere, Nor any drop to drink." It was this poem that first made me fall in love with Romantic poetry. I'd never read a poem like it before. ▪️ #grimdragon - day 24.

"I connect you with a view, a certain type of view. Why shouldn't you connect me with a room?" Cecil Vyse in A Room with a View, E.M. Forster 🔹 🔹 Be still my romantic heart (meanwhile La Bohéme's Che gelida manina is playing in the background)🎶 I have to gush about this book so beware SPOILERS below if you haven't read this one... 🔹 🔹 I LOVED re-reading this book. From the first sentence to the last it was wonderful. I looked forward to every scene coming up knowing what would happen but it's been so long since I first read it I felt I got so much pleasure from knowing what was around the corner. The dialogue was 👌👌and found myself chuckling at such moments when for instance Cecil exclaims "The style of her! How she kept playing Shumann when, like an idiot, I wanted Beethoven." Or when Mr. Beebe makes commentary about Freddy introducing himself to George says, come and have a bathe. And of course the quiet, restrained "romance" between Lucy and George that bubbles to a wonderful declaration of love. And not just that but one that proclaims individuality. "...But I do love you--surely in a better way than he does...Yes--really in a better way. I want you to have your own thoughts even when I hold you in my arms." 😍 What an extraordinary statement for the time period this was written!!! Finally, I must give a shout out to the 1992 audiobook narrated by Frederick Davidson. I mostly reread this on audio (1st time listening) and his performance greatly contributed to my enjoyment. 🔹 🔹 I read this and another early 20th century classic (Edith Wharton's Age of Innocence) originally in anticipation for my wedding nearly 10 years ago (next month is our 10th anniversary). I must admit this book did not strike me the way it has the second time around. I don't know if it's growth & life experiences or mood or what but I like how rereading books at certain times/ages in your life reveals something about yourself. And I'll say the 1st time I read this I was a closet romantic and now, the 2nd time around, I am a full on hopeless romantic. And very thankful I can be so with a spouse that has always encouraged my individuality. Okay, here ends this sappy post. 😆 〰〰〰〰
Caspar David Friedrich 🔹 "Wanderer above the Sea of Fog" Caspar David Friedrich was a 19th-century German Romantic landscape painter, generally considered the most important German artist of his generation. Some believe Wanderer Above the Sea of Fog to be a self portrait of Friedrich. The young figure standing in contemplation has the same fiery red hair as the artist. The figure stands in contemplation and self reflection, mesmerized by the haze of the sea fog as if it were a religious and spiritual experience. He wonders in that moment about the unforeseen future. #art #artist #romanticism #sea #man #artlover #painting #painter #instadaily #fff #germany #german #love #interesting #artinformation #information #blue #beautiful #colors #couleurs #tableau #wanderer #portrait #fog #deutchland
