Is How You See, What You See?

RIPE (detail) see pages 32-35RIPE (painting detail) from art book ILLUMINATIONS the Geogragraphy of the Imagination, pages 32-35
The tidal ocean of strawberry skin and its requisite seeds flow under an orange sectioned sun. What is myth but the extension of imagination and metaphor beyond the narrow confines of the linear and the literal? Large truths are not housed in small facts. The ILIAD tells a larger truth about war. Fairy tales plunge us into our deepest symbolic history. If you begin in wonder, you will end in profundity.
