...almost as though the sea has come alive with monstrous shpaes from the deep, or are they Poseidon's "maiden" attempts at wooing Demeter, by making her the most beautiful animal the world had ever seen: So to impress her Poseidon created the first horse. In some accounts his first attempts were unsuccessful and created a variety of other animals in his quest. By the time the horse was created his passion for Demeter had cooled?

Photographic surrealism?

Jen Nifer said...

Thanks nicrap.

Jen Nifer said...

It's a painting, FJ. :-)

Thersites said...

Oh!

I actually was just posting this photography website being plugged by a yahoo article.

But, I agree with nicrap. Very nice painting!

Does thispost have anything to do with the "wisdom" inherent in "Let it Be"?

Or of wisdom's opposite, Just Is? ;)

Thersites said...

There I go, violating the "Let it be" precept, again.

Sorry. But there's too much "justice" in it! ;)

Yes. :-) A friend of mine asked me to post some of my watercolors. But as I was listening to this song last night, it was just what I needed.

Thersites said...

Very Impressionistic! ;)

Jen Nifer said...

Who was / is your favorite Beatle, FJ?

Jen Nifer said...

It's an entirely different song!

Thersites said...

Ooooh, the minor scale doesn't work at all!

Paul was my favorite. I even liked Wings. Now THAT is ennui. ;)

Thersites said...

btw - Are you a Benedict Cumberbatch fan at all? My daughter posted this the other day.

Jen Nifer said...

WINGS! The soundtrack of my childhood. :-) I play the greatest hits album a lot.

Jen Nifer said...

Yes... I have a minor crush on him. I guess I'm a Cumberbitch now. ;-)

Jen Nifer said...

I like George. :-)

Thersites said...

Don't feel bad. There are a Cumberbunch of them!

Harrison was a bit more reclusive.

The hardest thing in the world, "sing" a Beatles tune. I never could.

Ok. this comment made me smile when I first read it..but now I'm thinking. Isn't it "wise" just "just let it be"? :-)

...only if justice isn't required. ;)

The "opposing" virtues.

Thersites said...

aka - The cardinal virtues.

Thersites said...

Virtue's "compass points".

Jen Nifer said...

yes. We've had this conversation before. :-)

Joe Conservative said...

I know. But I love every opportunity for expressing pedantry. ;P

Jen Nifer said...

I know. It's one of the things we love about you. ;-)

Thersites said...

More on the "essence" of virtue. ;)

It's just the motion

Jen Nifer said...

I still sit in my rocking chair, even though I don't have a crying baby anymore.
