 Sentence of Death, 1908,  oil on canvas by John Maler Collier, British, 1850-1934. Wolverhampton Arts Gallery, Wolverhampton, Staffordshire, England.
  A man sits in stunned silence with his doctor as he hears he has a fatal illness. Unknown whether or not the canvas was damaged or if the blurring of the figure indicates the already partial death of the patient.
 This painting, while popular and successful, represented one of what was called “problem” works. Some critics dismissed it as too much like the style of advertisements at the time.

I want this one moment. It’s what I want in a relationship. It’s that thing when you’re with someone and you love them and they know it and they love you and you know it, but it’s a party and you’re both talking to other people and you’re laughing and shining and you look across the room and catch each other’s eyes, but not because you’re possessive or it’s precisely sexual, but because that is your person in this life and it’s funny and sad, but only because this life will end, and it’s this secret world that exists right there. In public, unnoticed. That no one else knows about. It’s sort of like how they say that other dimensions exist all around us, but we don’t have the ability to perceive them. That’s what I want out of a relationship. Or just life, I guess.
