Hide our ignorance as we will, an evening of wine soon reveals it.
In a way, painting is like wine: it is as old, as simple, as primitive and as varied. Like wine, it is a very specific means of expression, with a limited vocabulary, but vast in its expressive potential.

A brief candle,both ends burning
An endless mile, a bus wheel turning
A friend to share the lonesome times
A handshake and a sip of wine
So say it loud and let it ring
We are all a part of everything
The future, present and the past
Fly on proud bird
You're free at last

What though youth gave love and roses, Age still leaves us friends and wine

Sorrow can be alleviated by good sleep, a bath and a glass of wine
Since water still flows, though we cut it with swords
And sorrow returns, though we drown it with a wine,
Since the world can in no way answer to our craving,
I will loosen my hair tomorrow and take to a fishing boat.
For when the wine is in, the wit is out.
