This lovely comment was unseen by me for a long time!
I sent it to myself since it deserves a note as a reply....

I stayed on as long as possible, esp since I knew you
were on at the same time... I was too shy to say
any more, possibly ;)

 You would not ask ???????? if you replied right beneath the concerning comments!
 On Sept.15th, I came on DA as you were writing, and I asked you to stay on for a while, but you left...
 I said that it was a pity... That's all!
 About melancholy, you're right. Melancholy is inherent in the french poetry: Vigny, Musset, Lamartine, and even Hugo ( all the "Romantiques" )do mean nothing but melancholy in their lines. The 20th ones
 were desperate  and giving expression to their despair through melancholy.. Rimbaud died too young:
 he had no time to lapse into melancholy...
  My favorite melancholic poets are du Bellay , Villon, and..Rutebeuf!."Que sont mes amis devenus....
 Pauvre sens et pauvre mémoire,
 m'a Dieu donné le Roi de Gloire...Et pauvre rente......"

The Baudelaire and Verlaine lines are among the best-known French poetry... :heart:

..and those lines may recall "...sweet-Elizabethan-melancholy.." that I believe I have mentioned before now... the art of melancholia...that milieu seems short-lived in English kultur... but a recurring milieu in French...

You are right , as...often!
 Most of the great french poets - XVI th to XX th cent.- have played on this chord:  Villon; Ronsard, du Bellay, Lamartine,   Vigny, Musset, de Hérédia,  Baudelaire; Verlaine, qui encore?

 ( Baudealire: " Sois sage, ô ma douleur, et tiens-toi plus tranquille...
                         Tu réclamais le soir?  Il descend, le voici.."

 Or Verlaine:  
                      " Les sanglots longs des violons
                                   de l'automne
                        Bercent mon coeur d'une langueur
                                     Monotone..."

Did I ever tell you that for me, Melancholia has been
an expressive and poetic word for a long time,
esp given its prominence among Elizabethans..
(c.f., Anatomy Of Melancholy) ...its a frame of mind
that is much more interesting than our modern
"depression"!!! Huggle!:heart:

It would remind me of the YLP landscape,
very much so, except for the bit of ocean...
DC's landscapes & other work
are very impressive for his handling of light...
I like his work, especially the rocks/boulders...

I am overdue to do some landscapes
of YLP, to correspond in a sort of way,
to the several I did of the Santa Cruz Mtns....
