I asked myself: Are you a Matisse?

as bold, innovative, focused? 


That is because I overwintered geraniums of which this is the first to flower before I took the plants outside to Spring sunshine and Spring soil.

Yes, came the Trump voice in my head (we have the voice in our head with all the sneers and intonations after 3 and a half years of the voice).


You are more brilliant, was the answer.  You are the greatest. 


Who the hell is Matisse, anyway? Who needs him? 

Is there anyone here who needs a Matisse? 

Speak up………..See it’s all silence here. Like I said.

    Oh, it is soooo bad, Sarah. ONLY humour will help us out-survive the man and his machinations. Oh, and, of course, the lessons of art.
