My thoughts on "Girl with a Lizard":
One's life, emotion, and feeling may be explained; the painting may take-on more meaning then anything else. She may offer an explanation for an unhappy or cheerful life that cannot be given by simple words and actions.

My thoughts after reading "The Other Man":
Most don't understand the burden and cold gift that vengeance can be. The weak and trying obsession with the other person. How often you wish to be close to the other person--to find their secrets so you can use it against them. For some, in the end, it all falters; the anger tightens and weakly breaks. Another passion forms where the weak passion has broken: one falls so deeply in love with the one they crave to hate. Sometime that person gives you a gift--through all the mixed anger and passion--you learn more about yourself in a way you never understood before. You never forget them and your love remains.
