Giverny, the 24th of September, 1923.
It is hard, this solitude of body and mind. I lost everything I held close to my heart…lovers… friends…but this blindness hits the hardest.
I feel the colors dancing on my face, I see them in my mind…the water and reflections. These landscapes have become an obsession for me, but I fear I am worn out by my age and fretfulness. My years have become a cruel and unforgiving companion and I can’t wish for a sooner departure.
And still…there is this desire to caress the canvas… to relinquish what I feel.
