The true colors of happiness

Today i thought that, now that we`ve talked about Sonia Delaunay, we should take a look at her male half: Robert Delaunay. What fascinates me the most is how this two managed to spend their lifetime togheter. Since they met, they were, what we would call today, a power couple.

Paris during the first half of the XXth century was like a bottle of champagne right before opening it: full of artists, plentiful of a big force that created lots of materpieces, so many art movements blossomed and withered.

That is the time Robert Delaunay lived, loved, painted. He cofounded the orphism, he was inspired by geometry and he used lots of colors. I`m thinking: what if their lives (his and Sonia`s) were built on pure happiness – that happiness that comes from simple things?

What if they were seeing the true colors and shapes of life and they wanted us to see them too?

My dear readers,

Doctor Jivago

I always enjoy the bad weather when i know that the ones I love are safe. We all comment about how awful it is because we cannot go out or meet other people or just because we like to comment, but tell me the truth: don`t you just love to know that you have an excuse to spend all day in the house, in your warmest sweater, drinking hot chocolate and reading or watching a movie? It is like that scene in Doctor Zhivago when Yuri and Lara arrive to the frozen palace and they stay inside, watching how the storm covers the landscape in snow.

With all this fog that came in my way these days, i realized that, instead of making such a big deal about it, we should just embrace the cold weather and try to make it more colorful.

On the other hand, these days my mind wondered through the modern art quite some time. In the area of expressionists, to be more precise. I remembered all of the things i did in school, when one of my great teachers thought me how, after years of trying to unchain the art from the Academy, the artists finally found a way to bond painting with spirituality. Nature becomes more and more a subject, viewed from a different angle: the artist leaves behind the idea of describing the nature as close to reality as possible. Instead, he centers on his inner feelings about nature and about what he sees. Just as everyone of us feels lazy because of the fog. Or happy because it is sunny. Well, they managed to express that on a deeper lever.

Seems like a year had passed since I last wrote here. But a new one blossomed from the hands of time and it is here to allow us to repair all our mistakes. It is giving us a chance to finally pursue our dreams and wishes, to learn how to be ourselves and how to respect others, to cherish and enjoy every moment in life.

I am not that much of a party girl and when it comes to the New Year Eve party, well, that is the one that I do not like the most. Even from my adolescent years, what I most like to do on NYE is to stay home, read, write down every memorable thing I did in the year that passed, analyse what I should have done better and define my goals for the year that comes. Besides that, I do not understand why are we all so happy about the new year that is coming, but after the party we simply forget to enjoy all this new days and hours that are given to us. Were we just faking? Are we really not happy?

Dear readers,

Sonia Delaunay  (6)

I always thought of myself not so much as a feminist, but as a feminine, typical girl. You know, the kind that played with Barbies and used to spend her time making clothes for all the dolls. Even so, my favourite movies and series were Beauty and the Beast and The Cave of the Golden Rose. Princess Fantaghiro was one of my models. Growing up, other faces began to fill my days and my walls: it was Frida Kahlo, Coco Chanel, Audrey Hepburn. Then i started to wonder: was a feminine or a feminist?
