I: Impressionism & Imagination, plus Iodine

I: Impressionism. Any time there's an exhibit at the stellar Kimbell Art Museum in Ft.Worth, I am there. Renoir (above), Monet (below), Manet's ballerinas, Cezanne's apples. The colors are vibrant, the moods dreamy, landscapes lush. I took a painting class in college. The professor had us set eggs on a white sheet of paper outdoors, then paint what we saw and look for the colors. Sure enough, pinks and tinges of purple erupted from the all white scenario

Imagination: You can't depend on your judgement when your imagination is out of focus - Mark Twain.

Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world - Albert Einstein.

Think Suzanne Collin's Hunger Games, JK Rowling's Harry Potter series - to me these are very imaginative and talented writers. Or Stephen King from yesterday's horror post.

Walt Disney, Pixar studios - dreams really do come true. It's magic.

Iodine - I almost hate to have a deadly dose on such a cloud of good feeling. But iodine's bluish black powder is soluble in alcohol and slightly soluble in water. It acts directly on cells by precipitating proteins and depressing the central nervous system. Reaction time is immediate with death in one hour.


  1. I think Pixar were beyond imagination, they had vision. And I'm so glad they did.

  2. Wonderful and interesting to read.
    Great "I" word.


  3. Hello fellow Texan! New follower here. I’m enjoying reading my fellow “A to Z”ers. I look forward to visiting again.


  4. Monet is my favorite impressionist.
