However in some of Picasso's work it may be just a bunch of geometric indefinite lines and shapes, but it is the work of pure abstraction. Observing Picasso's work of the "Nude Woman" is obviously unforeseen along with many of his other works, but this captures the eyes of many. The definite shapes, li...

    A creek is no place for shoes. I think its unreasonable to ask such children to keep their shoes on in such a place. My bare feet were always covered with calluses from walking down the rough pavement of Pine Street and around the corner, past the tall oaks, but not as far as the Lindsay's squeaky old swing-set. It was hard to see from the road, and as far as I could tell, nobody ever went there, except for me. Large pines nearby stood tall and erect, looking down at the ripples and currents tha...
