Men Melt

by Sherry Riter in Art  


Many things can melt such as:


melts especially when placed on the dashboard of the car on a hot summer day…no matter how carefully eaten, the liquid chocolaty yumminess is bound to drip somewhere


melt together when they haven’t seen each other in a long time…they embrace and kiss almost desperately, totally oblivious to the rest of the world

New Parents

hearts melt when they see their newborn child for the first time…the squeaky voice, fluttering eyelids, and wriggling form is mesmerizing as each breathe in and absorb ever nuance and the sweet scent of their newborn baby


melt…I should clarify:

ice men melt when placed outside by Brazilian artist, Nele Azevedo, to bring attention to global warming and the effects on the environment

These melting men appear to sit quietly contemplating the effects of the heat and their dilemma as they slowly disappear into a small puddle.

I know how they feel.

When I’m in the sun for very long, I feel like I’m melting too.

Don’t you think I look hot…in a temperature sort of way?

The very last picture is so poignant. I was listening to "Spirit Renewed" a piano solo distributed by Allegro Corporation, when I say that photograph. The combination was heartwrenching for me. How often have I set on the steps, my soul on self desctruction unable to move, just contemplating the future. My mind melting into nothingness. Just Wow! a very quiet peaceful wow.
