Spring Awakening Moon
It’s been a long, long dry spell. We’ve had no appreciable rain or snow since () and the garden has begun to show it. The daffodils have come up a bit stunted, many still in the ground would have popped long ago if they had the moisture. Our irrigation system doesn’t start up until late April. I may give’em a call and see if we can move it up, but that means I have to fix the netaphim Rigel and Vega chewed up at the end of last growing season. Gotta be done anyhow.
Until Now has me cranked up into steep learning curve mode. I’ve had the first two lectures, another one comes up next week as do walk-throughs for Art Remix and Until Now. Before then I have to get my head into the new artists and the new art, read a good bit. Look at the art. Read some more. Write a little. Peck a little. This should be fun, a new universe of art and artists to explore, many of them working with enlightenment ideas, especially the idea of the modern and the so-called post-modern.
That’s another rabbit hole I’m going to drop into again. Post-modernism. I started getting into when I did my D. Min. thesis back in 1990. Since then, I’ve read a good deal about post-modernism. The content of the term still eludes me. Perversely, it has made me very interested in modernism. That happened because I decided I needed to understand modernism to understand what folks claim about post-modernism. Seems logical, but I’ve begun to suspect that post-modernism is camouflage for other ideas, especially an assault on the nature of truth claims. Bet you can’t wait to find out what I learn.
Into the MIA today for two tours, both highlights. I did a highlights collection of things I already know well because this was a busy week for me. Besides, I’m putting my energy now into the Until Now/Art Remix.
