Limitations of Language

Note: It was suggested to me to make some of this blog's contents exclusive to my Patreon supporters. Admittedly I am not entirely comfortable doing so at this point.

January Print of the Month

Happy New Year! My pick for the January, 2020 Print-of-the-Month is titled, Indian Summer Glow.

Timelessness

If we take eternity to mean not infinite temporal duration but timelessness, then eternal life belongs to those who live in the present.
