...she will make it harder than it has to be.

But, then again, you try being asked to pick three paintings from each of five artists from five different time periods and expound upon why they "inspire you". I'll bet you anything that you can't do it. How is one supposed to pick just three paintings by Monet or just three paintings by Raphael or, even worse, just three paintings by ERTE?! I love them all (within certain categories) equally for different reasons and when I choose one painting over another I feel somehow guilty. It's like playing favorites with your children. I spent hours today debating between different renderings of Japanese Bridges, Water Lilies, Madonnas, and Erte's lovely dresses, say nothing of trying to intellectualize my enjoyment of each. As Professor Walker (no relation... to the best of my knowledge... I've been wrong before) you lose something in translation when you try to describe why it is you love something. You can never accurately explain the depths of your passion and your experience to anyone but yourself... and even then it's a considerable trial.

I'm not the boy. I don't make lists and rank how much I love things. I can't. I'm too mercurial.

Argh.
