Rita became a good wife and mother, but her husband was a man of violent temper. In anger he often mistreated his wife. He taught their children his own evil ways.
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Mark 9:38-40.
John said to Jesus, «Teacher, we saw someone driving out demons in your name, and we tried to prevent him because he does not follow us.» Jesus replied, "Do not prevent him. There is no one who performs a mighty deed in my name who can at the same time speak ill of me. For whoever is not against us is for us.
Impression III (Concert)
. Kandinsky used the term impression to describe paintings that reproduce a direct impression of external nature; improvisations, by contrast, are paintings that replicate impressions of an internal nature; and compositions likewise elaborate impressions of an internal nature, but are created more slowly and with greater deliberation. However, sketches for Impression III (Konzert) demonstrate that Kandinsky was not depicting either the particular concert situation he experienced on January 2, 1911, or a particular composition; rather, the picture portrays his overall impression of a musical performance that nonetheless has its origins in the significant experience of the concert and the group’s new musical encounter.
