Minerva

What a sleepy little town in Ohio.  The streets were bare and the town had not changed for decades.  When I walked in the local cafe the old men who were regulars at the eatery all looked over at once, I was a stranger.  It’s little forgotten country towns like this that make me realize how easily a place, person, or time can be misplaced and all together forgotten.  It’s peaceful though.

    You know, I’ve been thinking about the opportunities that the blog format allows and the book format doesn’t. I think this post is a good example — atmospheric description of a place, sense of the author experiencing it, and a photo that makes it even more salient. This really works.

    Sorry – one more thing. I was thinking about what ‘truth’ is. This (post) is it. Just a representation of what’s real and meaningful. It doesn’t have to involve a ‘heightened state of consciousness’, it doesn’t have to be a revelation written on a stone tablet, doesn’t have to be proscriptive. For me, it’s something that is ‘recognized’ by the reader/listener – something you already knew was true non-verbally, but are now hearing it articulated.

      You know, I never really thought about it until you mention it here. But you’re exactly right.

      “It doesn’t have to involve a ‘heightened state of consciousness’, it doesn’t have to be a revelation written on a stone tablet, doesn’t have to be proscriptive. For me, it’s something that is ‘recognized’ by the reader/listener – something you already knew was true non-verbally, but are now hearing it articulated.”

      I think that is kind of what this whole blog is about. I’m gonna try to do more of these types of posts.
