If anyone would ask me how to get happy, one of my recommendations would be to write a one lined poem prompt on Chalkboard. Thank you for proving this.

It is interesting how the two images you so smartly combine, pop up in many replies: Faces of old Native Americans, standing for wisdom, and remade faces of ladies (never men), standing for fake beauty, superficiality.

Corresponding landscapes can be found in paintings and photos I watched in a wonderful exposition in the museums of Assen(the Netherlands) and Emden(Germany), named ‘the American Dream’.

The beauty of the eternal natural landscape: Ansel Adams, Minor White, Neil Welliver.

The spoiled, remade landscape: John Moore, Robert Birmelin.

Friend of life and beauty and foe of spoilers of life and beauty. Golden marriage. Grandfather. Pianist and micro poet. Dutch, European.
