How I Would Paint Happiness
Something sudden, a windfall,a meteor shower. No—a flowering tree releasingall its blossoms at once,and the one standing beneath itunexpectedly robed in bloom,transformed into a strangertoo beautiful to touch.
—Lisel Mueller, from “Imaginary Paintings.”Art: Guido Cadorin.

“When we crossed the Nevada border some men made us stop. We couldn’t take our melons into California. … We didn’t have a knife or anything. We split the melons open, smashing them on the legs of the sign that said ‘WELCOME TO CALIFORNIA’ and we stood on the concrete platform eating them, the juice spilling down our arms.”

Mona Simpson, from “You Leave Them.”
