Paolo Veronese, St. Catherine of Alexandria in Prison, c. 1580-85
From the Metropolitan Museum of Art:
The Roman Emperor Maxentius condemned Saint Catherine, a fourth-century princess of Alexandria who had attempted to convince him of the validity of Christianity, to twelve days of starvation in prison. Veronese shows her in a dark prison cell comforted by the dove of the Holy Ghost. Behind and below her are fragments of the wheel with which the Emperor sought, unsuccessfully, to kill her. She was ultimately martyred by beheading and holds the martyr’s palm. The painting was done late in Veronese’s career, probably around 1580–85, when his work was characterized by a dramatic use of light and a new depth of expression.
The mortal sounds to keep the rainbows moving, and the un-level seas above the ground.

One day, I will do a cover of this song. I will.
Someone, I don’t care who, send me your address anonymously (in a message - no, I won’t come find you) and we can be penpals. Give yourself a name if you want. I’m only choosing one person, if I even have that option. Yes, I realize that you will have the advantage of knowing who you’re writing to and that I won’t, but that’s fine by me. I don’t want to be biased. Yes, I know that I could use deductive reasoning to figure out who you are if you are a friend, but that’s fine. I’ll try not to read into it.
I really just like the idea.
If you also like the the idea, but you really want to be more covert, suggest something else :)
Words words words
Mean so much and end so quick
We’re almost there and nowhere near it. All that matters is that we’re going.
I’d like to know more about these people. They have an interesting story; leaves a you with a really strange feeling.
