patterns of ink

How fruitless to be ever thinking yet never embrace a thought... to have the power to believe and believe it's all for naught. I, too, have reckoned time and truth (content to wonder if not think) in metaphors and meaning and endless patterns of ink. Perhaps a few may find their way to the world where others live, sharing not just thoughts I've gathered but those I wish to give. Tom Kapanka

Contrast the tone of Homer's "The Herring Net" with his water color "Sailing the Catboat."
Below is an unrelated carry-over comment and reply from last week's "Hign Noon."
It was separated from the above post while republishing.

patterns of ink,


Rather than a focus on the Rorschach Inkblot, may I suggest
a five minute sojourn to our Reality Weblog?

The 'History' post is worthy of your careful attention.


We attempt to provide a broader perspective, and your Comments are
certainly welcome. These are perilous times. reb

I am able to discuss such topics but I'm comfortable leaving that task to your blog for now.

My posts last week that alluded to the war were prompted by my understanding of why we live "a better life" (and my belief that the Gospel of the New Testament is superior to a "kill the infidels" approach to religion.)I was focusing on the contrast in values at the heart of this war on terror.

There is a difference between Victory and Peace. As I see it, the goal in Iraq is victory in order to vacate—but no matter what we do there will be no peace in that region until swords are turned into plowshares (Isaiah 2:4)

Now...how 'bout that Winslow Homer? =)
