It seems to me that the time for subtlety, in our American life, has passed. Do we look for subtlety in news media nowadays? In pop music? In fashion? In TV, movies? Even in visual art, is subtlety what we seek out and richly reward? Do we seek delicate phraseology in politics or other forms of public life?

We do not.

My personal life has been on something of a downward spiral lately, negatively affecting both my health and finances. Things finally came to a head when my primary computer broke down. Unfortunately, I have no means of getting it repaired within the short term. Photography and blogging will have to take a back seat while I figure things out, or not. Presently, I’m at a loss.

What is Chineseness?

When I think about human history and civilization, it always appears to be like a string: one extreme is old time and tradition; current and contemporary is the other. Interestingly, when we turn and join the two extremes together, it forms a perfect circle and creates a new language of art.
