"Ocean of delusion..." For some reason I think I will be stealing that phrase!!
Wow, Lydia, that quote is definitely gives one pause. I'll probably be thinking about that all day long - thank you (I guess!). The graphic has to be San Francisco Ocean Beach - the windmill and the Beach Chalet. The latter, btw, has been completely restored and has a fantastic mural. We had a great celebration there when my youngest graduated from SF State.
Where did you get that wacky postcard? Last time I was at Ocean Beach I froze my patootie off!
distracted~ Have at it!Amy~ I am grateful to you for identifying the actual beach. Your comments are a huge addition to the post. I actually thought it was a sort of mental collage and not an actual beach. The chalet looks/sounds like a wonderful place!Hattie~ It's not a postcard, but a painting that I found at imagekind.com. Most of the artists there have hot links to their sites when you click on the painting/photo embedded. It appears this artist didn't include the link in the embedded image. See Amy's explanation? Are you familiar with that beach?
So... should we embrace the ordinary ? and cast off the sacred ?But I see sacred traits in many ultra-ordinary sights... what a conundrum. Think I'll have to sleep on this one... nothing like a good night's sleep to clear cobwebs...:-)
What a great quote! Have a wonderful new week ahead my dear Lydia.
Owen~ I too discover the sacred in certain ordinary things. And I wonder if that isn't one conclusion we were meant to draw? I think there are probably more than one conclusion here...maybe some sleep will unlock some more.Phivos~ Glad you liked it. Here's wishing you a great week too. (In an earlier post I said I would not complain about the rain, but oh my it is just pouring right now...)
My ears were burning so I Google'd and found this thread :) Yes, indeed, this is my painting of Ocean Beach. I surfed there quite a bit back in the day, and in this piece you can see figures representing myself as well as my wife Nikki and daughter, Sienna, flying a kite.Thanks for including my work here on your blog - much appreciated. I also did one of the giant SF Hearts this year. You can learn more on my main site, http://www.johnkraft.com Best,John Kraft
NikkieEinfeld~ How thrilling, John, to have a message from the artist of this painting. I was especially drawn to it and I love knowing some background information about it. btw: I "like" you on Facebook! I'll definitely take a look at your main site and am so glad you left it here for others also. Thank you.
