Spirited Away

Carla Golian, 2017, oil on canvas, 40 x 50cm
This painting is inspired by the Anime film, Spirited Away

I try to let go, to let go, to let go,
And to let go some more.

I try to hang on,
To the faith, to the hope, the beauty

I try to hang on,
To the promise that no one made,
The promise of the promised land.

The divine paradise.
To be,
Spirited Away.

I fell in love with an Ape

His name is Caesar, from Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

Wow, what a movie. I loved it!

The story was fantastic, and so was Caesar.

I loved his expressive and powerful eyes and his brave will to fight for justice. My heart connected with his.

Wonderful acting Caesar!

I strongly recommend it for anyone who wants to watch a good movie.

They say love is blind… Tis True!
