Image result for ): L'homme endormi

Is there a painting or sculpture you’re drawn to? What does it say to you? Describe the experience. (Or, if art doesn’t speak to you, tell us why.)

I love paintings, but they don’t speak to me. I don’t have that special language down pat. However, I am drawn to Charles Auguste Émile Durand’s L’Homme endormi or Man Asleep or The Sleeping Man. I’ve now used this masterpiece as an inspiration for one of my short stories.

June 25th: 21st-century citizen

 :

Do you belong in this day and age? Do you feel comfortable being a citizen of the 21st-century? If you do, explain why — and if you don’t, when in human history would you rather be?

Although I do consider myself an old soul and I’d rather be stuck in Ancient Egypt, or when Jesus Christ first walked the earth, I am content in this century because this is where God wants me to be.
