Inigo: You know, It's very strange. I have been in the revenge business so long, now that it's over, I don't know what to do with the rest of my life.
Westley: Have you ever considered piracy? You'd make a wonderful dread pirate Roberts.
from The Princess Bride
Inigo! He is looking for a second act. A new career. A life change. What to do? How about painting? With those sword skills, painting should be a breeze. :)
Back in the studio for mounds more of reconstituted crackle paste and another woodland piece. This one without a figure, celebrating instead the geometry of the trees softened by a "come hither spring" palette.
I just finished a book by Cixin Liu: The Three-Body Problem, a science fiction beauty recommended by my science beauty sister. And wow. A fabulous story, but what really grabbed me was the author's postscript. "There's a strange contradiction revealed by the naïveté and kindness demonstrated by humanity when faced with the universe..." He describes how we destroy other civilizations on earth, yet look up to outer space and assume extraterrestrials would be civilized, noble, kind and peace-loving. He suggests a reversal: "Let's turn the kindness we show toward the stars to members of the human race on Earth and build up the trust and understanding between the different peoples and civilizations that make up humanity." Just the right message for our planet today. Maybe Inigo could become an earthly ambassador for peace.
