Splash du Jour: Tuesday

"Mere life" is not enough to satisfy an artist. It must be shaped, molded, into something that - in its very shapeliness, its ordering - is GIVEN meaning. This is the vision, the end, of art. Yes. I believe that is what art does...it transports us for a while. Frost calls it a "momentary" stay against confusion. No one thinks of it as "reality." Whatever that is, good God, we have more than enough of it in our lives.

Very funny cartoon, Mr. C.

And - just wanted to note that your new poem posting on Poetrypuddle is fantastic. Breathtaking, really.
I am quite amazed at the range of style and subject matter in your work.
All I can say is that you must have some marvelous sources of inspiration.

Always look forward to reading you, cipriano.
Keep it coming.
