Rise of the Econites

"Every living thing
upon this earth
has a right to exist"

claims the species
who made it through
survival of the fittest.

    I discovered Escher some years ago. He's quite the optical illusionist. I have a handful of artists (painters) who are my very favorites, including Vermeer (No. 1), Monet, van Gogh, and Andrew Wyeth and others. I have several early poems on my take on famous paintings. I should post a few. / Maurice

    One of my very favoriytes "modern" paintings! It caused a sensation in 1913 at the New York Armory when first shown. One critic called it an explosion in a shingles factory. Think of it as successful frames in a film in slow motion. Anyway appreciate your reading it. / Maurice

    Same here. He's out of print right now. I got a copy of his grooks from a friend of mine who lives in France and is Danish. He's a translator and I sometimes edit his english translations. He also speaks fluent english, french, and has a knowledge of german and french. I visit with him from time to time. Thought you'd like to know. / Marvin

    Ah, now it makes sense. Your explanation reminds me of the bird lover and painter Audubon. He painted birds he said in order to preserve them but to preserve on canvas he first had to kill them. Thanks for enlightening me, Tim. / Maurice

    Okay, enlighten me. Who or what are Econites? This sounds like a true grook, like Piet Hein would have written. Well done. As for my frustrated pastor, he's the exception. Thanks for the stop. / Maurice
