at Sea: with Nina Simone

I would like a man now who is rich, and who can give me a boat - a sailboat. I want to own it and let him pay for it. 
My first love is the sea and water, not music. 
Music is second. Nina Simone

Edward Hopper, Rooms by the Sea, 1951.



  1. I love the sound of the sea.
    Gorgeous painting.

  2. I know this painting very well. It hung over the fireplace in the President's House at Yale University. I once spent a week staying in the house as a guest when I was a teenager, and I enjoyed spending time during that visit alone in the living room where the picture hung, gazing at it. I was obsessed with it, and I loved it. How nice it is to see it on your wonderful blog, Dear LA. Reggie

  3. Or how to represent the abscence with a ghostly presence of light.

  4. And I'll take a yacht from a rich Russian oligarch.

  5. Thank you--I needed to be reminded of this. Also, I would like a very rich, but very deep and intelligent man. All others, need not apply. (Well, depending upon how deep and creative he is, a little less than very rich is OK)

  6. Think, in the earlier days Nina had a much proper opinion about men and what they can deliver. Her music and poetry was much better then. :)
    Greetings & Compliments from Bavaria.

  7. thanks-All for the comments, of course from previous posts you know I love Nina Simone-and she is I remind you from NC. pgt
