V is for Victuals!!


The Rogue Speaks:

Victuals To Nourish The Senses


I would feel malnourished if I did not have all the muses in my life. Visual art, in all forms, nourishes us through our eyes. Van Gogh may have thought that eating paint was nourishing, but unfortunately all that lead he consumed by putting his brushes in his mouth did nothing for his longevity, and probably contributed to his early demise. Viewing art, however, is wonderfully nourishing for our senses. Having art around us in our lives, seeing it, feeling it in sculpture, just seems to make us feel better.



Musical victuals are music to our ears! You do not have to be a lover of classical music to be nourished. Popular composers, their music and lyrics, speak to the hearts of so many people these days. Their songs can make you happy and dance around, or peaceful and loving, or a little weepy when they have special meaning for a certain time in your life. Music nourishes our hearts.

The music you hear is by one of my favorite composers, Vaughn Williams. Actually, I like all kinds of music with the exception of heavy metal.



I love to read, as you all know. I have always been a very fast reader, so my summer reading list is always very long. Thanks to my Kindle, our back seat is no longer stacked with bags of books when we travel. Books are victuals for our minds, and that is why we are known to devour them.



Stage productions and films are victuals as well. Acting is a very difficult art to master, and a good play or film can not only nourish our minds but our spirits as well. It can be food for thought, as the film Thirteen Days was for me. This film is based on the Cuban missile crisis, and gives one a good look at just what went on in the White House during that time when Kennedy was President. If you look closely in the lower right-hand corner of the photo below, you will see the Ocean Spray guy! He played Dean Rusk in the film.



I always wanted to be able to dance, but I am a total klutz with a very poor sense of balance. I step on my own feet! The skill and athleticism with which dancers perform, their grace and spirit, always leaves me in awe of their talent. I come away from a performance feeling like I just ate some chocolate!!



After writing this post, I am so full that I might just have to skip dinner tonight! My senses are just stuffed to the gills.

I hope you have enjoyed my offering for Alphabe-Thursday. There are a lot more offerings on Jenny's blog to choose from, so get busy!

very beautiful and yummy.

Kathy Felsted Usher said...

The painting is very calming, it would be nice to make a quilt in these colors.

Teresa said...

You have a wonderful balanced meal here. I suppose dessert is all those wonderful blogs!

Pondside said...

I can see that we are nourished by the same things and could be quite happy at the same banquet.

Nick said...

A veritable "V" fest - clever!

Jo said...

wow, what a feast! I feel full now too ... and oh i have always wanted to dance ... sadly, two left feet and an unaligned sense of balance kept me well out of that art, but i sure do love to watch it!

Karen S. said...

Wow, you really hit all the hot stuff on V....I am so impressed! Very, very interesting and the photos are great with each one! ...and so many of my own favorites! My daughter's wedding cake, was designed after Starry Night! ...and it was also red velvet ....so yummy! (she had an entire star theme!

Ames said...

Extremely interesting. You have filled my senses up with visual victuals.The imagery of Van Gogh wetting his paint brush with the lead based paint reminds me of the girls that worked at the Radium Dial company. Young girls wetting their paint brushes as Van Gogh did, painted their faces with radioluminescent paint containing radium. After they were told it was harmless they unknowingly gave themselves radium poisening.Very interesting V post Judie!

Kenia Cris said...

Hello there! Nice to meet you, Judie. I'm glad you're an artist and you've been my first comment in a post about Van Gogh and then I stop by and you've mentioned him too.

I'm glad to get to know a little bit more about you, I'll watch the movie, thanks for a great suggestion.

Take care and keep smiling. <3

Cindy Adkins said...

Hi Judie,

You just won my giveaway at The Shabby Chic Girls' Club! Congratulations!!! I'll be mailing your envelope right out!!!

XO
Cindy

Riet said...

Beautiful V post. Victual satisfied here. Thank you for sharing

myorii said...

Well said! And definitely a great post to share :) I'm with you about visual art being food for the soul and the brain regardless of what form it comes it. Without the ability to appreciate some form of art, we'd all be robots! :)

Jo-Ann Sanborn said...

Your blog is a feast for the senses, and I leave much nourished.

Jo said...

My eyes have feasted,now I'm going to fill the ole belly,the foodie photo makes me long for a big Thanksgiving Dinner.

JDaniel4's Mom said...

You have served up wonderful victuals for all the senses!

☆☆Mumsy said...

You fill me up in this post with beautiful thoughts, and feelings, Judie!

Gattina said...

I too lost my appetite, lol ! Van Gogh has always been my favorite painter.

Sue said...

What would we do without art? Life would truly lose its color.

Thanks for the reminder!

=)

EG Wow said...

Victuals is a wonderful choice for V. I very much enjoy your thoughtful posts.

Eliza Wynn said...

Very creative take on "V."

I don't think I've ever seen the Ocean Spray guy outside the commercials.

Judie said...

Eliza, Henry has been in many films and stage productions during his career. He has also been in a lot of dramas on television, and for years he did voice-overs for The Discovery Channel. He is a very gifted actor.

askcherlock said...

Judie, this is an extravaganza of culture and beauty! The music, the colors of Van Gogh, all of it. What a joyful visit. You made my day. :)

Kiddothings said...

Totally enjoyed your serving of victuals here! Thanks!

cj Schlottman said...

Judie, This is very nourishing to my senses and my soul. Thanks, Pal.

Namaste..........cj

Stacia said...

Love all the victuals! And I'd be lost without my Kindle, too. =>

Birgit said...

Victuals is such a perfect V word! :) You know what? In Munich, we have the Viktualienmarkt -- Victual Market.

Thanks for visiting my blog -- and congrats on winning Cindy's recent giveaway. I have a link to Cindy's blog on the sidebar of my blog -- she creates such neat things! :)

Greetings from Germany,
Birgit

Ah...Victuals! Great V words!
Happy Alpha-V Day!

Did you ever teach classes or want to teach? You'd be a wonderful teacher. It's not just what you share; it's how you share it.

Francisca said...

With me, you are singing to the choir, my friend! Victuals for the senses, indeed!

Judie said...

PJ, I teach painting, and creative clay.

Mari Sterling Wilbur said...

We have so many loves in common. My retirement is rich and rewarding because of them. I've studied pottery and love making hand-built clay items. I didn't realize you taught creative clay - wish we lived close by each other. I'd love to be a student. I hope to start teaching on-line photo lessons this winter. Teaching is a joy and so rewarding. Love the word victuals! Great choice.

My Grama's Soul said...

Found you at Jake's. I too live in the Southwest. Looking forward to getting to know you.

Jo

Cheryl D. said...

Very great art appreciation! What would our life be without the arts?

bluzdude said...

Love the Van Gogh!

And for my upcoming cultural edification, I just received my tickets for Spamalot, which is coming to Baltimore next month. I'm as happy as an unladen swallow.

Tammy said...

Delicious post.

Personalized Sketches and Sentiments said...

Very filling victuals for sure! I didnt know about Van Gogh eating his paint...I agree with you about the type of music too...love all types, but not the heavy metal...I wonder what the composers from the 1500's would have thought about the heavy metal?...I admire anyone that is on stage and screen! especially when they can get you to relate or hate the character they portray... and as far as dancing...thank goodness, our kids have that gene passed down from my hubby's side and my mom! (It skipped me, cuz I tend to find myself off beat and have to pause to get back with everyone else!) & I had to laugh about your back seat not being stacked with bags of books! (This reminds me of all the trips to the library with our 3 kids...there were often times when the last bench seat of our minivan was so loaded with everyone's books...thankfully, there was just enough space for the three to sit in the middle bench.

Blessings & Aloha!

Jenny said...

Oh wow. Move over Starry Night! I love this painting. And all the thoughts you expressed here. I think all the things you immerse yourself in are the things that make you totally fascinating!

Thanks for sharing this Judie. I always adore your food for thought!
