  1. Hah! that made me laugh

    • I must confess that I was tempted to illustrate this quote with a painting by Rothko, but I know some people appreciate his work even if I don’t.

      • well I must now confess I find the his tragic story intriguing and his paintings are so huge that when i saw them I did quite like it. Although I don’t know if I’d like it if I didn’t know his tragic life story.
