Wishing you joyous views, happiness and peace. To start the year, I offer you this image and poem.
Gustav Klimt (1862 - 1918), Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I,
1907, oil, silver and gold on canvas, 54 x 54 in. (138 x 138 cm)
HE WISHES FOR THE CLOTHS OF HEAVEN
Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.
William Butler Yeats
