Improvisation 30 – Wassili Kadinsky

IMG_20150207_180411

 

“The joy of life consists in the inevitable, continual triumph of new values.” (Wassily Kadinsky)

I’ve already said that I’m not too fond of non figurative art, but then I come across a painting like this and I can’t resist it. The colours are gorgeous and there’s so much happening in the painting. It really stimulates the imagination!

The painting is from 1913. It can be found at Art Institute of Chicago.

Copenhagen

My first trip outside Sweden went to Denmark. I went with my parents, as I was still a child. I have three unforgettable memories from that trip.

 

 

Sloop John B – Lyrics

We come on the Sloop John B
My grandfather and me
Around Nassau town we did roam
Drinking all night
Got into a fight
Well I feel so broke up
I want to go home

So hoist up the John B’s sail
See how the main sail sets
Call for the Captain ashore
Let me go home, let me go home
I want to go home, yeah yeah
Well I feel so broke up
I want to go home

The first mate he got drunk
And broke in the Cap’n’s trunk
The constable had to come and take him away
Sheriff John Stone
Why don’t you leave me alone, yeah yeah
Well I feel so broke up, I want to go home

So hoist up the John B’s sail
See how the main sail sets
Call for the Captain ashore
Let me go home, let me go home
I want to go home, let me go home
Why don’t you let me go home
(Hoist up the John B’s sail)
Hoist up the John B
I feel so broke up I want to go home
Let me go home

The poor cook he caught the fits
And threw away all my grits
And then he took and he ate up all of my corn
Let me go home
Why don’t they let me go home
This is the worst trip I’ve ever been on

So hoist up the John B’s sail
See how the main sail sets
Call for the Captain ashore
Let me go home, let me go home
I want to go home, let me go home
Why don’t you let me go home
