WEEKEND REFLECTIONS - A WOOLFIAN REVELATION DAWNS....AS A WORK IN PROGRESS EVOLVED, IT WAS REVISED...


So many thoughts on the making of a slideshow as I shot these moments from dawn through sunrise!


 
To quote Woolf:   " ... that behind the cotton wool is hidden a pattern;  that we - I mean all human beings - are connected with this; that the whole world is a work of art; that we are parts of the work of art.  Hamlet or a Beethoven quartet is the truth about this vast mass that we call the world.  But there is no Shakespeare, there is no Beethoven;  certainly and emphatically there is no God;  we are the words;  we are the music; we are the thing itself" From "A SKETCH OF THE PAST" by Virginia Woolf


So, if you have got about 4 minutes to play the revised slideshow below, here are some reflections for the weekend: Woolfians might like this!

RUBY TUESDAY 2 - SOUPE DU JOUR...




I DON'T THINK SO!





A MONDAY RANT INSPIRED BY RINKLY RIMES'S "MURDER BY GADGET"...




The story originates from Get-UP, an Australian organisation dedicated to giving a voice to the ordinaryman.  Learn more from Get-Up! 

When my friend Brenda (of RINKLY RIMES fame) decides to get serious, her take on this human rights issue is right on 'the money' today.  Think about it when you receive, or use, your newest gadget... to quote from MURDER BY GADGET, "Oh what fun! An iPad!" and read on...Rinkly Rimes today


 I chose to add to Get-Up's current photo op one that I own, an image mentioned in Brenda's Rime that so aptly illustrates her point.  George Baxter Snr. was the inventor of the oil process of making colour prints in the 1800s.  "The Morning Call", engraved by George Baxter, was probably not meant, in 1850, to be a protest image, but issued for its 'charm' in colour for the prevailing aesthetic collector.   Like the iPad, what collector cares (even today) about the slave labor employed to add to a fun existence?
