C12: What a life

C12: What a life

I look at you and it’s like I am 18 again

I remember what it’s like to feel young and miserable

But now it’s different

I have more wisdom

Limited, I shall say

But able to carry me through seeing life outside of you

I taste second chances

I feel grace

I am in awe of what a life it is

Ivan Konstantinovich Aivazovsky P. II

Dear Wonderful Reader,

Here is Part 2 of Ivan Konstantinovich Aivazovsky’s art. He was born on July 29, 1817 in Feodosia. He was a Romantic Russian painter from an Armenian descent. He lived in a poor household and gained fame at the of 25. Aivazovsky was unaffected by his new found fame and wealth, he lived a humble life by the (Black) sea  which he was fascinated with as evident in his paintings.

Ivan Konstantinovich Aivazovsky (1817-1900)

Dear Wonderful Reader,

I am speechless.

I will try to muster the ability to summarize what I love about those paintings:

  • The delicate use of color
  • The amazingly beautiful light
  • The tranquility of the seascapes
  • The fury of the seascapes
  • The true to life waves

On to the paintings…

Saying I Love You First…

I love you!

tumblr_n3wp6rtJOi1s0kw3no1_500

I know that women aren’t supposed to say I love you first, but I am down to break all the rules here. I just wanted you to know that I love you… You’re probably freaked out, but I just can’t imagine saying that to anyone except you. And even though we may not be on the same page yet, I am not ashamed of how I feel about you. I don’t wanna fight my feelings for you, I wanna nurture them because they’re beautiful.  And don’t you worry about hurting me and all that BS, because I can take care of myself pretty well. (And why do you assume I’ll be the one getting hurt anyways?!) But, I choose to be here because I want to and I want YOU. I can easily divert my attention from this, live my life (like I was before), and have this with someone new. But, I just don’t see the point cause I already have this with you and I want you and (baby) you’re worth it.

All I want from you is to see you… Let’s just hang out and see how it goes…just go with it and trust me, it won’t be so bad ;)!”
