When I finished this post Nov. 13 at least 118 people were killed in Paris by terrorists at a concert and at some well known bars. This is in memory of the fallen. My thoughts are with them.
Chagall was the beginning of this post a few days before. His museum is in the South of France.

Even though Chagall is mainly a painting artist, he made three(?) stained glass mosaics about the Days of Creation. Sadly his stunning religious works (in Nice, Fr.) are not accessible in America, because the former give a quite different impression than his works in the USA.
What I like about him: his deep, almost jarring ultramarine. On another note, someone may be famous, but at the end of the day …. A story fitting for Jenny Matlock’s new meme: Warm Heart. Chagall adored and stayed true to his wife. He painted in a very difficult time, being a Jew – True to his destiny.
That makes me feel I want to follow in his footsteps.
Strolling around in Lucca (Italy) we ran into Puccini’s house with his statue by the front door. He is known for Tosca, La Boheme, Madame Butterfly.
THE RANDOM: Beautiful iron fence with a banana bush (?) leading up to the Botanical building in Balboa Park, San Diego
THE FUN: Knitting 2 blankets for my smallest Grands -the other is a pink 10-stitch blanket that is knitted by going around in a square.
Michaels and JoAnne’s World is the place for this yarn. Shown is the backside of the free pattern of Purlbee.com
Lilly patches in a pond made Monet famous, except for the reflection on the left, with the gray shirt:)
That I love art, does not mean I like the style of every artist. Monet, for example, does not move me one bit, and don’t think he deserves the fame he has. My favorite music is classical, but I can’t stand Mozart’s music, it gives me a head- ache.

It amazes me that a few days before the terrorists attack in Paris took place on Nov. 13 , I finished this post that began with Chagall, who escaped Russia, and lived in France, and because of World War II moved then to the USA probably because he was a Jew.
My son (living in Holland) was in Paris to meet an American friend last Tue. for a few days. Am very thankful they both left France in time. This friend wrote on Facebook that when they left,” it got a little scary… ” A diminutive comment, because they both had lived and worked in another risky country.
