As I stare deeply engrossed in the elegant swirls of the yellow and blue hues that make up Vincent Van Goghs ‘Starry Night’, I can’t help but yearn to know what it would feel like to be inside this painting. The night sky a soothing lullaby, with stars twinkling like fireflies. There’s something peaceful and serene about the endless twists and turns of the magical sky painted over the quiet city. Perhaps I cling to this particular piece of art because I am stuck going through the motions of grasping at any minute sense of amity I can find. I want to shine as brightly as the moon does in this masterpiece, a roaring ode to tranquility in the sky.
