My grandfather always said that living is like licking honey off a thorn.
Be careful who you vent to.
Martine Johanna recently opened a solo show at WALLS Gallery in Amsterdam entitled “The Grand Illusion of Sanity" which is on display until October 5th. The show is based on society’s demeaning view of women and the psychological effects this has on women. You can see a few more paintings from the show below!
I like cancelled plans. And empty bookstores. I like rainy days and thunderstorms. And quiet coffee shops. I like messy beds and over-worn pajamas. Most of all, I like the small joys that a simple life brings.
You, who takes oxygen from the universe,
and gives back carbon dioxide in return.
You, who basks in sunshine at seven in the morning,You, whose parts are organs and tissues and cells and elements and molecules and stars.
and solidifies your bones with it.
One day, you will return the dust you’ve borrowed from this old, old universe.
But until then,
You are a piece of this moving everything.
And everything is not everything without you.
