Partial Light

Sometimes argument is futile.

We see only in part.

I don’t know all the answers, because I don’t know all the questions.

A finger pointing at the moon is not the moon.

When we look at the moon, we’re also seeing the sun – reflected light. Is the moon the sun?

I need to keep opening my eyes wider.

It's so strange, Ruth. I left a comment the other day and I see it's not here. Actually, this is happening on Nate's site as well. Very strange.

Anyway, I said that I particularly love the Irish icon of the harp/lyre on the back of the chair. It's one of the most soulful symbols/icons of my life :) Guess I must be part Irish!

I also said something brilliant about the sun/moon dichotomy but can't remember what!

Boots: I noticed yesterday that there was 1 comment on the main page, but when I went to look at the comment, there was nothing there. I suspected something malfunctioned. I'm sorry it was you! I wish you could remember about the sun/moon dichotemy!

Yes, that harp is such a great image. I didn't realize it meant so much to you! (Or I forgot.) Did you see the original in the Trinity College library?

This is a very cool way to help us think about what we THINK we know and understand.
