Surrealism, Spanish birds, Romanticism and the great outdoors. Summer time is cake.

“It is a moving sight to watch on summer mornings as young bees gather honey for the exhausted and dying workwomen who, before their eyes grow dim, receive a passionate kiss from the sun, our father of life. Hear the anxious cry of the dying—“Light, more light!”—from the great Goethe to the humblest creature. Might this universal plea signify an optimistic prophecy? After death’s darkness, will the sun of immortality rise? It is comforting to hope and to believe so.”

- Santiago Ramón y Cajal, Café Chats (translated by Benjamin Ehrlich)
