Yuja Wang is a Chinese-born classical pianist.  The San Francisco Chronicle says she is “quite simply, the most dazzlingly, uncannily gifted pianist in the concert world today.”  The New York Times described her concert at Carnegie Hall last week as “exhilarating.” 
Plus, let’s face it, this photo is awesome.

Joan Miró (20 April 1893 – 25 December 1983) was born into a family of goldsmiths and watchmakers in Barcelona. He is noted for his paintings, sculptures, and ceramic art. His childlike enthusiasm and a natural disdain about the conventional way of painting prevalent at that point of time persuaded him to experiment with a number of methods starting from realism, fauvism to surrealism. Noted author Ernest Hemingway purchased one of his artwork titled The Farm and considered it to be comparable to James Joyce’s Ulysses. He said,

It has in it all that you feel about Spain when you are there and all that you feel when you are away and cannot go there. No one else has been able to paint these two very opposing things.

In 1918, Joan Miró settled in Paris and created many of famous paintings, including The Farm, there. About his own life and work he commented,

For me an object is something living. This cigarette or this box of matches contains a secret life much more intense than that of certain human beings. When I see a tree, I receive an impact as if it were somebody breathing, somebody speaking. A tree, too, is something human.

I wouldn’t necessarily mind people not knowing I’m gay, but I don’t like being thought of as straight — in the same way that I don’t mind people not knowing I’m a writer, but it would be awkward if they assumed I was an extreme skateboarder, because that’s so far removed from the reality of my life. But there is no blank slate where orientation is concerned; we are straight until proven otherwise. And if you’ve never seen how dramatically a conversation can be derailed by a casual admission of homosexuality, let me tell you, it gets awkward.

This speaks to me so much, and is probably the most important part, but let me tell you, I like this bit more:

What would be great, I think, is if I could hire some kind of old-timey town crier to precede me into any room I enter, shouting “Lesbian coming! Lesbian coming this way!” and possibly ringing some kind of bell. Then everyone would already know before our interaction commenced, and they could be pleasant or horrible as the spirit moved them, but at least we’d be communicating from a place of honesty and I wouldn’t have to worry about whether I’ll inadvertently reveal myself.
