  1. This image is perfect for my post tomorrow. It begins like this:
    Man is the pinnacle of creation because he alone is made in the image of God. This is sufficient to establish his worth, whether his esteem agrees or not.  There are many bright souls whose gifts are apparent and on display, and we reward these people with praise.  This works well as long as conditions are right, but unlike God, ours is a conditional love.  We are harsh and judgmental, beating each other down to a form where God’s image is barely recognizable.
    This is where miracles occur.  The image of God is inextinguishable.  As John Steinbeck wrote in The Grapes of Wrath
    „For man, unlike any other thing organic or inorganic in the universe, grows beyond his work, walks up the stairs of his concepts, emerges ahead of his accomplishments. This you may say of man — when theories change and crash, when schools, philosophies, when narrow dark alleys of thought, national, religious, economic, grow and disintegrate, man reaches, stumbles forward, painfully, mistakenly sometimes. Having stepped forward, he may slip back, but only half a step, never the full step back. This you may say and know it and know it.“

  2. I would have thought a guy who’d figured out how to make a levitating tire, would look more elated. Think of the savings on mileage.
    But perhaps a refugee, hearing the echo of gunshots?
    It is hard to make me think on the weekends, but your pictures always do.

  3. Gets my imagination going full blast … looking to see what he sees … conjuring up a red poppy growing in the weedy debris … although a yellow Labrador also wants to take the space between man and wall, looking into man’s eyes, trying to get man to smile …
    Thanks for the diversion! Beautiful blending of imagery.
