seeing Miro



Today, a beautiful blue sky day I visit the Miro exhibition at Tate Modern.
I rather like Miro, ladders are in many pieces, he says 'they reach from the terrestial to the celestial, but to be creative we must be rooted in the earth else all is lost.' His constant battle with oppression in Spanish politics continues to surface in the work, and all the while he longing for a simple life and freedom to submerse himself in that Catalan earth. 
When I returned home I looked at the sky, Miro was with me still!
