Re: Reflections on...your writing or  'Do not stand in a place of danger trusting in miracles'

From: Arete, Chicago


Thank you for your response, I think most people find what is in the context of an image of art a lot more submersed and unexplainable than a line of text. We grasp what we can to try to pull ourselves to a higher level of understanding of your books. Text seems to a more concrete hint than any idea painted on a canvas. In artwork, you can almost never say, "we know this much is true". You have to infer upon your inferrance, which is a dangerous art at best. So that, in my case at least, is maybe a reason why you recieve more queries on the written word than the painted idea. A theory is stronger when less assumptions are made to reach a decision.

Thanks! Arete
