...to stand on the meeting of two eternities, the past and future, which is precisely the present moment; to toe that line. -H D Thoreau

We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be
to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time. -
T. S. Eliot

ake a picture and you expect a somewhat open interpretation.
At least that's what I like in visual art. I like words direct and telescoped into pointed meaning. So the incantation is less questionable.
But that rarely happens.
Unless everyone is using the same dictionary.
One image seen and identified says something so very different than a visual description. Every one has a different relationship with their visual world.
Not trying to pigeon hole, just musing on something.
Everything I just said could be turned on it’s head, and sound true, too.
Using those limited words I so falter with.

Some people feel the rain. Others just get wet.
-Bob Dylan

Jerry often says that Slam Bradley was really the forerunner of Superman, because we turned it out with no restrictions, complete freedom to do what we wanted; the only problem was that we had a deadline.
-Joe Shuster

The ultimate inspiration is the deadline. -Nolan Bushnell

  2. Muse away Jayne! But sometimes I do find myself seeking a different dictionary altogether. Helps me to understand their words, so to speak. Puting one's-self on the same page, if you will, wot?

    I so, enjoy the quotes. And the art. You do give one quite the mental feast y'know... :)

  3. I love turning the world on its head. When someone takes an idea I hold as usual and customary and makes me look at it in an entirely new light, oh yeah, I am in awe.

  4. Yes, its the combination of the art, the words and the quotes. It's like a three course meal. Very satisfying.

  8. Everyone, Thanks for visiting...

    Subby, I reckon the more ways to say a single thing the better. Jargon is useful.

    RL, Thanks ever so much!

    Alan, Burp!

  9. Visual poetry! Yes, we may use the same dictionary but sometimes the meanings change due to our individual state, the reason why some graffiti provoke deep thought and the others just provoke annoyance.
