George Carlin Death

Happy 104th Birthday, Balthus!

Dearest Balthasar,  
Although you are long gone and your atoms have dispersed back into the universe (and are now part of some mushroom or turnip), I still think of you regularly, and not just because of our shared perversions and Polish ancestry, but because I continue to love you! 
<3 I

No, this is not my apartment! This is Daumier's depiction of a woman writer, but it might as well be me, and if I ever end up with a little darling of my own, it will be me!  Although this is my favorite Daumier, I couldn't find the date or title anywhere online.
