Eric isn't particularly artsy,
but there is one piece that he really appreciates:
The Knight, Death, and the Devil
by Albrecht Durer (1513).
The first year we were dating,
I bought him the print.
This year for his birthday,
I framed that print.
Now our guests get to enjoy it when they stay over.
Eric connects with the determination and focus of the
knight, his horse, and his dog
amid distractions of death and the devil.
