Everyone discusses my art and pretends to understand, as if it were necessary to understand, when it is simply necessary to love.
-- Claude Monet
Whenever I think of Monet, I think of my Mom. In 2013 my sister Rachel and I took my mom to Europe. One of the top items on her list was to see Monet's garden at Giverny, outside of Paris. We spent a lovely morning amid his flowers, and Mom said the whole trip was worth it just for that experience. Love you, Mom! (Rachel, you're pretty awesome, too!)
