Building thefts increase!

On my walk through the neighborhood today I saw this.

Yes. Someone has stolen this building.

I pointed it out to the tall person and he smiled and said that it is highly unlikely that the building had been stolen. He added that it is more likely that it is still being constructed.

Hmm. You are so naive tall person. That is what they want you to believe.

Tomato goes to extraordinary lengths to be user friendly!

On my walk through the kitchen today I saw this.

Tomato

At first, I thought it was this………………..

tomato ketchup

………the little person squeezes this when he wants ketchup on his fries.

I pointed it out to the tall person and he smiled and said that perhaps the tomato was an example of Anti-mimesis – a philosophical position that holds the direct opposite of Aristotelian mimesis, whose most notable proponent was Oscar Wilde, who opined in his 1889 essay The Decay of Lying that “Life imitates Art far more than Art imitates Life”.

Hmm. I had better warn the little person or he will get a very messy surprise the next time he has fries!

The real magician is light itself

On my walk in the forest yesterday I looked up and saw this.

Trees in Forest

The tall person noticed me looking and he looked too. After a long silence he returned his gaze to me and told me that seeing this reminded him of something the American photographer and painter Edward Steichen once said, “I knew, of course, that trees and plants had roots, stems, bark, branches and foliage that reached up toward the light. But I was coming to realize that the real magician was light itself” .
