Happy Sunday Readers –
The lens-artists theme this week (here) is “Wild” – and here are a few photos to connect to the theme:
Sweater of many colors- a little wild…. colors and fringe – this is her art.
Must’ve been a wild n’ crazy night:
Now check out this WILD price for a set of eight glasses – 1,600 dollars. Are these simple glasses that much nicer than the ones in the previous photo? Perhaps…. but 1,600 dollars? Snob-appeal marketing?
My next photo is of a man who was “wild” about recycling:
This next part of my Sunday Post is to connect to the SIMPLICITY theme (#OWS). However, it will still connect to the WILD theme.
Recycling people make a difference in the world.
So do Inventors.
The man who invented the first working escalator, Jesse Wilford Reno, passed away in June. His escalator idea was a hit, but his idea for an underground subway seemed too “wild” at the time and the subway idea was rejected.
The first week of June also marks the time that Chaptal added sugar to wine, in the late 1700’s, to increase the alcohol content. Maybe this is when the food corruption really started – when chemists started changing the simple balance of things so people could get a little wild from the extra alcohol content. tsk. tsk. tsk.
Cannot mention sugar being added to wine without sharing this photo from Amy’s health workshop two years ago.
Did you know that sugar is eight times more addictive than cocaine?
Lastly, author Stephen Crane passed away this first week of June back in 1900.
My favorite short story from Crane is called THE OPEN BOAT (read it here)
The Open Boat is a simple story, yet complex. The men endure a wild, stormy night at sea and make it through. However, thinking they will be rescued – they light cigars and celebrate to then realize the perceived help was not a rescue. The men have to fight, again, to survive and cross the abrasive surf to reach shore. Crane takes us on an adventurous journey that stirs up gratefulness and taps into the deceptive nature of reality and human limitations. (2013 post about it is HERE)
