Still Life with Fruit Basket

Still Life with Fruit Basket, Paul Cezanne, 1880-1890

Sometimes I feel all out of whack and ready to slide, like the objects in this painting. But Cezanne, master that he was, created a balanced and workable composition, even though the stuff on that crazy table looks as if it ought to be sliding onto the floor. To extend the metaphor, I might be an unstable apple married to a tippy pear, living near a heavy basket of fruit placed at the very corner of a precarious table-land, and still God has everything in perfect control.
