I've loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night. This is not a Galileo quote. It's from a Poem by Sarah Williams called "The Old Astronomer to His Pupil"
Van Gogh's Starry night is my favorite painting. But once I read his biography, it made me so sad that I gave the print of the painting to my husband for his office. Now I just hang my second favorite, French painter Monet's Waterliles.
For my home, we'll see if Maddie will spruce it up with some fun colours
