"Not having an opinion means not having an obligation. And not being obligated is one of the sweetest of life’s riches."

Oh, the irony of that statement.
Most people don’t notice I’m polite, which is sort of the point. I don’t look polite. I am big and droopy and need a hai…

Good Morning Google+  your daily story about art: 03.15
Today is the Ides of March, a day many may recognize as the day that Caesar was murdered in 44BC.  Originally, the Ides of March was just one of many 'Ides' - each month of the Roman Calendar had a day called Ides around the middle of the month.  

The term 'Ides of March' became famous after Shakespeare used it in his play Julius Caesar. In the first act, second scene, a soothsayer cautions Caesar to 'Beware the Ides of March', but is bundled off by Caesar's guards.  So, while some say that the Ides of March is just like any other day, if you look, you can find lists of events that occured on a March 15th that will include horrendous things such as the stabbing of Caesar in 44 BC, the abdication of Czar Nicholas II in 1917, and (gasp) the cancellation of the Ed Sullivan Show by CBS in 1971.

Here let's just focus on the first of these events, The Death of Caesar, by Vincenzo Camuccino, an Italian painter of the Neo-Classical style. This is a perfect example of the historic genre. We are presented with the scene of Caesar's stabbing in Rome. The classical architecture and statuary, as well as the clothing of the figures give hints about the period. The groups of men, some participating in the killing, others shocked and looking on, show the divisions and various factions in the Senate. 

And finally, in an ironic twist, Caesar is killed not in front of his seat, but at the feet of a statue of Pompey, his longtime rival in Roman politics. Is this a case of Camuccino reminding us of Vanitas?

Enjoy you day, Ides of March or no, but tread lightly

When I'm working it is all Internet... web design, new media, photography, coding and web tech. When I'm playing it is all about the food thing. Someday I'll put work and play together and hit the road!

I like to make stuff. Be it something to look at, something to wear, something sweet or savory to eat... the process of working it out from beginning to end makes my heart happy.

I met a friend for lunch several days ago at Sabai. We both enjoyed Tom Kah, mine with shrimp, and split an order of garden salad rolls. The soup was delicious, everything was perfect!
