Our Past Is Real

“Scars have the strange power to remind us that our past is real.”
Cormac McCarthy, All the Pretty Horses

Repaired cracked mural, Denton, Texas

Even artworks… no, especially works of art… develop cracks and hopefully will be repaired. Is the art lessened by this? Or does it add a greater dimension, one of time, pain, and disaster – if not avoided, refurbished.

  1. Dear Bill Chance. This post is timely and struck me as “real.” Many of us human works of art are probably feeling a bit cracked right now, or at least discombobulated. I expect the “refurbishment” in our future should add a new dimension of understanding. Thank you for the visual reminder.

    • Thanks for the kind comment! For obvious reasons I’m not able to get out and take photos like I like – so I’m having to dig back through my unused inventory and am glad to find anything worthwhile.
