James Abbott McNeill Whistler, Nocturne in Black and Gold - The Falling Rocket, 1875, Detroit Institute of Art, Detroit
Whistler painted a series of Nocturnes which depicted quiet nighttime scenes. He simplified each painting, capturing the essence of each scene, with the intent of evoking deeper emotions from the viewer. He was influenced by Japanese artists, especially Hiroshige who also depicted similar subjects. His Nocturne series produced scathing criticism from the art critic John Ruskin, whom he eventually sued for libel.
It is normal to feel lost. It is human to be confused.
I wish I could make men as uncomfortable as you do.
Just show little to no interest in them. We’re trained at a young age to laugh at their stupid jokes, stroke their ego, and encourage their childish behavior. Don’t do any of those things and they become insanely anxious and scared.
If your only problem with certain books is the age group for which they are meant for than I feel bad for you because you’re missing out on some amazing stories. And if you aren’t reading for the story, then what’s the point?
