[ New Year’s Eve]
“Still Life” by Henri Matisse,
born on this date, 1869
It’s New Year’s Eve. The end of the decade, of the “Naughties”. what a decade it has been.
I have no “message”. Except this. American stands on the edge of destruction. We have chosen militarism and imperialism. It leads only to Death.
In the calm of Matisse’s calm simple still life, ponder this moment of our history and the World’s history. Ponder – on this eve of a new decade – what you want our nation to be.
Resolve to work for it.
