Picture of the Day
October 25, 2018

Noir is the only film genre named for
how it looks--darkness predominates.
The high contrast of light and shadow
embody a black-and-white morality.

Maybe this ethical
clarity was just a
function of Hays
Code strictures, but
isn't tennis with a
net much more

Art is the act
of rising above

I seek escape in
timeless truths
and nature, listen
to the Iliad on tape
on a scenic detour
through Interlaken.

Good is good, but
evil is assertive.
That's just human.
