Breakfast in the Garden (1933):
by Per Krohg. I'm ready for picnic weather. I'm ready for dry ground. Yes, I know the rain will give us pretty spring flowers, but I'm damp to the bone and ready for heat!
The news is oppressive and frustrating, and I've been grateful for the Olympics. I've kept the Olympics on and turned to the news only when I've seen some new development discussed on Facebook. It's odd to say I've been getting my news from FB, but at least that way I could seek out information on news events when there's been something new going on instead of watching the constant stream of people repeating their opinions. And although there are many books to read and movies to watch, I can't do that 24 hours a day. Honestly, I need pleasant weather and some time outside!
This Nowegian artist best known for the painting in the United Nations Security Council chamber. He died on March 3, 1965. I hope the United Nations can live up to his painting.
