IF: For My Little Subversive

Heart Of Gold


Heart of Gold 18" X 56" acrylic on wood

“Men fear thought as they fear nothing else on earth -- more than ruin -- more even than death.... Thought is subversive and revolutionary, destructive and terrible, thought is merciless to privilege, established institutions, and comfortable habit.”

Bertrand Russell

In your blue toy box
Searching for a golden smile
Or a queen of hearts.

56 " high - wish I could see this in person. Must be like a doorway to walk through - and behind it, what? And energy of deliberate thought, in my mind. So enjoy your work, your site. Always a pleasure to drop in.

I always read the quotes and every now and again one really hits home. This Bertrand Russel quote is so true. I have a sister who I love dearly but sometimes I wonder how we could possibly come from the same family. I like to think I am a thinker and I don't fear thought. My sister feels much safer not to think at all. All her information comes from brief, slanted grabs on the TV nightly news. This makes for some great arguments although it is difficult to argue with a closed mind.

Your "Heart of Gold" is exquisite. I love it - a lot. And, of course, I am humming the Neil Young song.
