Seem clips of it! Seems awesome!! … “It is a blend of wonderful music highlighting Van Gogh’s wonderful art as it appears slowly at times and explodes on occasion onto every wall of of a large exhibit room.”

My wife and I went for a second time yesterday to see the “Immersive Van Gogh” exhibit that has been making its way across the country. This time we took two of our adult children to experience it. They enjoyed it as much as we did. What is it?

It is a blend of wonderful music highlighting Van Gogh’s wonderful art as it appears slowly at times and explodes on occasion onto every wall of of a large exhibit room. The fact it is not a rectangular room aids to the viewing, as you could change your position on your bench seat (built for two or three) and see nooks of art or turn around and see a larger wall.

The viewing is of repetitive segments of about fifty feet long where the art comes alive. The immersive experience has the computer presented art actually moving, whether it is shimmering…

The ‘evangelical commnity” … is indeed wicked!! – Gerry of Grumpy’s Grumblings – “His voice, unfortunately, is like a lone howling wolf in the wilderness, especially as it relates to the evangelical community.

Indeed, those folks are a tough nut to crack. As he so often has pointed out here in this space, on our blog, they’re like a bunch of sheep in a herd. Critical thinking is discouraged. Dissent is a quashed, quickly and forcefully.”

On The Fence Voters

Our friend Jerry over at Grumpy’s Grumblings has a big announcement today. The book he’s been working on for several months, is finally finished. I want to officially offer my congratulations to him for getting it done. His voice, unfortunately, is like a lone howling wolf in the wilderness, especially as it relates to the evangelical community. Indeed, those folks are a tough nut to crack. As he so often has pointed out here in this space, on our blog, they’re like a bunch of sheep in a herd. Critical thinking is discouraged. Dissent is a quashed, quickly and forcefully.

That’s why his courage to speak out must be amplified and spread as often as possible. And if I can help him in that endeavor, I’m honored to do so whenever I can. Here is a small excerpt from his announcement. Please click on the link at the end to…

What happens at twilight!! … — Fyodor Tyutchev, from Twilight; (Translated by Avrahm Yarmolinsky). Written in 1835.

Live & Learn

Soft the dove-hued shadows mingle,
Color fades, sound droops to sleep.
Life and motion melt to darkness
Swaying murmurs far and deep.
But the night moth’s languid flitting
Stirs the air invisibly:
Oh, the hour of wordless longing;
I in all, and all in me.

Twilight—tranquil, brooding twilight,
Course through me, serene and smooth;
Quiet, languid, fragrant twilight,
Flood all depths, all sorrows soothe,
Every sense in dark and cooling
Self-forgetfulness immerse,—
Grant that I may taste extinction
In the dreaming universe.

Fyodor Tyutchev, from Twilight; (Translated by Avrahm Yarmolinsky). Written in 1835.
