    This would be me if I had the energy to scream; I feel so darned beaten down right now–with no end in sight. Hang in there, Sarah; we can do this.

    Sarah, go to DNS “Once Upon a Time in the West” about 3:30 and see your “Mona Lisa” smile. That always gives me a good feeling. Then Tuva sings, with her absolutely cute nose. Can’t be sad with that. If that doesn’t do it, go to “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” and wa-wa.

    Sarah, This famous pastel painting entitled “The Scream” was painted by Norwegian expressionist Edvard Munch in 1893. It sold at auction on May 2, 2012, for a whopping $120M to Leon Black an art collector. The face of the protagonist in the painting inspired the mask in the 1996 film “Scream”

    In his diary in 1892 Munch wrote: “One evening I was walking along a path, the city was on one side and the fjord below. I felt tired and ill. I stopped and looked out over the fjord—the sun was setting, and the clouds turning blood red. I sensed a scream passing through nature; it seemed to me that I heard the scream. I painted this picture, painted the clouds as actual blood. The color shrieked. This became The Scream.”

    While the painting depicts several connotations, the face captures the raw anxiety felt by millions of families in this surreal pandemic era. We are held captive by an invisible enemy with the power to devastate, demoralize, and divide our country. I share your current mood in a thousand ways.

    BTW, I enjoyed your interview with Caroline Campbell yesterday. It was a brief and uplifting break from the dark cloud that looms above all of us. Thank you for sharing it.

    My absolute favourite piece of art and one of the most iconic paintings ever made. It’s easy to relate to it, if one looks at the human condition; but one cannot live in constant despair… To quote Stanley Kubrick: “However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light”; the nature of that light is highly personal and will be different for each of us, but we all need to find the one(s) that work for us
