HappY MONDAY!!!

Well we are going thru wild times.  

But be of good cheer God has overcome the world!

He is still in control!!

 

Psalm 46:1-11 King James Version

 

1   God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

2  Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;

3  Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.

  4   is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High.

5  God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early.

6   The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted.

7    The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.

8    Come, behold the works of the LORD, what desolations he hath made in the earth.

9   He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire.

10   Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.

11The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.

 

Have a wonderful day!!!

YaY!!!  

One day to the weekend you beautiful people!!!

Thursday, Thursday!!!  

Well, it’s a good thing I decided not to go to The Bronx Zoo yesterday, because there was an incident there where …

Dozens Stuck in Midair at the Bronx Zoo
More than three dozen cable car passengers were stranded for hours Wednesday night at the Bronx Zoo after an emergency mechanism caused the ride to shut down.
Reports said that a powerful thunder strom caused the malfunction.   I love taking that cable car across the park.  It gives a beautiful airal view of the zoo.  They where stranded for like 5 hours.  The free admission probably had allot of people visiting the zoo yesterday.   Everyone is OK God!  :O)

Bill Viola: Buried Secrets

 

In this work 3 women are greeting each other.  The scene is recorded from a fixed camera position, the actions of the figures are seen in extreme slow motion and are presented in a vertical aspect ratio. The entire original event of forty-five seconds unfolds as an elaborate choreography over the course of ten minutes. ……

I saw this work in 1997 at the Whitney Retrospective of his work.  I went to see it like 3 times and I drug my father to see it, because I kept talking to him about it.  He love it too and he is a very practical man :O)

What did we love about it??  The main reason why this is my favorite piece of his, is that it tickles the mind with it’s obvious but not overt reference to Mary the Mother of Jesus and her greeting women in the square.   This is purely my interpretation and the artist gives us no verbal or written guidance that supports this interpretation.   

But it goes to my theory that you can experience nothing in it’s pure form, all your experiences and the interactions are all colored if not guided by your past experiences and when you have strong reaction and connections to anything it is because of these factors.

The beauty and truth I found in Bill’s work is that it focuses you on each breath we take in this life and how much we actually miss in our daily interactions.  The greeting seconds streched into 10 minutes.    With no sound.  But I was paralized unable to move absoultely captivated by the silent dialog and information that became so illuminated in that interaction between those three women.

So much so that it is still huants me over a decade after seeing it and it has changed me in that it showed me a truth that I didn’t know before that truely even moment counts and means something.
