Having a Coke with You by Frank O’Hara

“Having a Coke with You

is even more fun than going to San Sebastian, Irún, Hendaye, Biarritz, Bayonne
or being sick to my stomach on the Travesera de Gracia in Barcelona
partly because in your orange shirt you look like a better happier St. Sebastian
partly because of my love for you, partly because of your love for yoghurt
partly because of the fluorescent orange tulips around the birches
partly because of the secrecy our smiles take on before people and statuary
it is hard to believe when I’m with you that there can be anything as still
as solemn as unpleasantly definitive as statuary when right in front of it
in the warm New York 4 o’clock light we are drifting back and forth
between each other like a tree breathing through its spectacles

and the portrait show seems to have no faces in it at all, just paint
you suddenly wonder why in the world anyone ever did them

I look
at you and I would rather look at you than all the portraits in the world
except possibly for the Polish Rider occasionally and anyway it’s in the Frick
which thank heavens you haven’t gone to yet so we can go together the first time
and the fact that you move so beautifully more or less takes care of Futurism
just as at home I never think of the Nude Descending a Staircase or
at a rehearsal a single drawing of Leonardo or Michelangelo that used to wow me
and what good does all the research of the Impressionists do them
when they never got the right person to stand near the tree when the sun sank
or for that matter Marino Marini when he didn’t pick the rider as carefully
as the horse

it seems they were all cheated of some marvelous experience
which is not going to go wasted on me which is why I am telling you about it”

(This is a series of articles on how to express and match your lifestyle with interior design concepts. Personalizing strategies, decision-making, do’s and don’ts, techniques, color combination, functionality, and the pieces that reflect you.)

They say that the home is a reflection of who and what a person is—a mirror of one’s taste, a showcase of one’s personal and professional achievements, and sometimes even a preview of one’s intellect. And just like the way you dress and the lifestyle you live, your home should convey “YOU” and tell a story of your personality and what you are…. (To read more, please click here or on the link below)

Les Miserables Movie 2012

Video

Christmas is just a few months away, and that’s not the only thing to look forward to this December. Les Miserables, the 2012 adaptation of the 1862 classical French novel by Victor Hugo combined with the musical presentation by Sir Cameron Mackintosh (one of the greatest musical producers of all time, who brought to life Cats, The Phantom of the Opera, Miss Saigon Mary Poppins and yes Les Miserables). Directed by: Tom Hooper (Academy award winning directo of The King’s Speech) Starring Hugh Jackman (Jean Valean), Anne Hathaway (Fantine), Russell Crowe (Inspector Javert) and Amanda Seyfried (Cosette) to name a few, this movie is set to be another box office hit. 2012 is shaping up to be light year for Oscar contenders, making this latest version of Les Miserables a top contender. (hopefully)
